Event description: 

Adele Myers and Emily Coates are both dancers and choreographers who recently produced artistic projects closely related to physics. While Adele used her imagination, instincts and knowledge about people and objects in relation to time, space, and gravity, which led her to Einstein’s Happiest Thought, Emily had an opposite creation process. Inspired by her ongoing collaboration with particle physicist Sarah Demers, in her latest piece Incarnations she uses physics as both a source of movement and a “found object,” which she intertwines with dance history. During this evening, we will consider how the creative process influenced the final result, thanks to video excerpts of both performances and discussions with Adele and Emily.
