Event description: 

The Wright Lab community is invited to join former Wright Lab Artist-in-Residence Emily Coates to screen the film “Invisible Universe,” which was developed during her residency at Wright Lab.
“Invisible Universe” is a feature-length experimental documentary and dance film directed by Emily Coates that chronicles spontaneous collaborations between leading dance artists and scientists encountering each other for the first time within Wright Laboratory. Part performance, part cinematic essay, the film frames the intimate, sometimes awkward process of dialoguing across differences, staging choreographic investigation inside a physics laboratory tasked with studying unseen phenomena. Featuring paired interactions between acclaimed choreographers Annie-B Parson, Ni’Ja Whitson, Rashaun Mitchell and Silas Reiner, and renowned scientists Richard Prum, David Moore, and Reina Maruyama, with a cameo by research and development technician Frank Lopez, “Invisible Universe” considers the poetic confrontation between the methods of the dance-maker and the metrics of the scientist.
