Wed 19 Sep, 5.30pm. £8 / £6
With high-flying aerial stunts, a magical soundtrack and stunning design, Flying Atoms, is a perfect introduction to dance, theatre and physics for thosed aged 6 and up. Dance, experiments and aerial tricks will delight and inspire wonder at the magic of the universe.
Professors Gusto & Hitch work hard in the laboratory of curiosity answering questions: how do birds Stay in the air? Why don’t Stars fall from the sky? Where does the moon go during the daytime? But there are some questions that can’t be answered with experiments alone.
When Gusto remembers his trip to the Circus it’s just the breakthrough they need. The gravity defying tricks of the Flying Atom Sisters and their aerial acrobatics help us to understand as we observe the forces, twists, spirals and spins. Back in the lab we dive into the microscope and explore the atom itself. With many more questions, only one thing becomes certain, the universe is filled with wonder and not everything is as it seems.
There is a pre-show workshop at 4pm on Wed 19 Sep, which is free if you book a ticket to attend the show. The interactive workshop enables participants to put into practice and experience for themselves some of the basic scientific principles from the show.
Tickets are available from Box Office on 01874 611622 or online at http://bit.ly/FlAtoms
