Event description: 

Movement Paradigms in Dance and Physics
Led by Artist-in-Residence Emily Coates
Friday May 10, 3:30 - 4:45 pm
The Vault, Wright Lab

Using simple movement exercises, we will consider basic principles of choreographic organization, interaction, and complexity drawn from the art of dance. From there, we will move into a conversation about the notable parallels and/or striking differences between the ways the imagining of movement plays out in the physics research undertaken by scientists affiliated with Wright Lab.

With the concept of movement as our point of connection, the goal is to create an active exchange of ideas between scientific and artistic disciplines, and a forum in which to consider physics knowledge and expertise from an alternative perspective.

The workshop is open to individuals of all physical abilities and backgrounds.
