I’m excited to announce a collaboration with National Circus School graduate and professional Finnish circus artist, Kerttu Pussinen. Just two years after graduating from the NCS, Kerttu is working on her first solo show — Particle # B. The show will use circus arts, magic effects and more to visualize principles of physics and quantum mechanics. This is exactly the kind of interdisciplinary experimentation that motivates me as a magic consultant, so I am thrilled to be part of the show’s creative team. With generous support from the Finnish Cultural Foundation and the TOHU, Particle # B begins its first creation residency in Montréal on October 1st, 2016. Kerttu and I will be speaking about our collaboration at the Fields Institute for Research in Mathematical Sciences this Thursday evening in Toronto. Please click here to RSVP if you would like to attend this LASER Toronto event.* It would be lovely to see Toronto friends there. In particular, I would like to encourage those of you with a strong interest in physics, quantum mechanics and the performing arts to attend.
* Special thanks to the facilitators of this free event for making our participation possible: Antje Budde (Digital Dramaturgy Lab, Institute for Digital Humanities in Performance at the Centre for Drama, Theatre and Performance Studies), Nina Czegledy (LASER/Leonardo Network), Roberta Buiani (ArtSci Salon, Fields Institute), and Don Sinclair (Computational Arts at York University).
