ChoreoPhysics - Nov. 9

three people intertwined with scientific formulas

High School Matinee

This program is the product of a collaboration between an artist and a scientist. For an entire semester, Professor Keith Earle of the UAlbany Physics Department and choreographer Ellen Sinopoli focused on a communion of the arts and sciences studying side by side the principles of physics and modern dance. Equal parts lecture, demonstration, performance and discussion, it includes a choreographic work for the Ellen Sinopoli Dance Company that utilizes more than a dozen laws of physics, deeply intertwining the science with the dance.  Over 2500 high school students taking classes in physics, calculus, pre-calculus, anatomy & physiology, chemistry and biology have experienced this program since its creation.
