The Mystics of Science; Revealing It's Inner Workings


Part 1: Exploring the science though theatre using online sessions with the artists.
Each class will have 1-2 sessions with the artists via zoom. In these sessions the class will explore how to think about the inner workings of science as movement. Things like – how does echolocation work, or if you act out phases of the moon -what does that look like? These sessions will then be used as the backbone of the later work when the artists are in the school.

Part 2: The main residency week.
Each class will create a piece of theatre showing the inner workings of science in some area related to the curriculum, like magnetism, the properties of air or sound waves. Students will contribute to the stories, the movement, sound and props as they explore how to convey scientific movements through theatre. All students will be performers in the show as we share our work with parents and the community.
