About The Scientific Mime, or, What’s Up With Gravity?

 

 

Science is full of abstract words and invisible forces that are hard for young people to grasp. But once you’ve seen a mime struggling against gravity, pushes, pulls, inertia, and other forces, they become real. Audience interaction, and belly laughs, included.  The Scientific Mime, or, What’s Up With Gravity? includes an entertaining lecture-demonstration about mime, a gravity-defying mime piece, an investigation into the effects of gravity on juggling, and hilarious demonstrations of invisible forces that only a mime can pull off. This performance appeals to children in grades 2-5. Curricular connections: English, Theatre, PE, and Science: Forces and Motion.

 

About Mime Explains String Theory!

Her performance for adults, Mime Explains String Theory! starts before birth, ends after death, and wobbles unsteadily across the terrain in between. It incorporates mime, puppetry, metaphysics and metaphor. It makes manifest the strong force that connects us all, which is love. It leaves other and with that rising feeling–what more could anyone ask for?
