Forces at Play
Monday, October 2, 2017
12:30 PM (seating available at 12:00 PM)
Austad Auditorium, Browning Center, Weber State University
Join us for a celebratory performance that integrates science and art on a single stage. “Forces at Play” is the creation of Erik Stern (Weber State, Dance), Adam Johnston (Weber State, Physics), three professional dancers, and our ongoing collaborations and workshops. We’re welcoming teachers and students for this free presentation, suitable especially for students in upper elementary (4th grade and up), middle school, and high school, as well as university students and faculty.
This 40-minute production (followed by Q&A) includes compelling science demonstration and artful dance performance. More important, it emphasizes the parallels and overlap of science and arts practices and overarching themes that are important in both. Investigations, questions, design, patterns, models, and other themes that are shared by art and science — and are common objectives in both educational settings — will be featured in the performance.
We look forward to seeing you there!
