Apr 21, 2017
07:00 PM until 09:30 PM


From inspiration to execution—art is a science, and science is an art. Explore the intersection between creative expression and scientific exploration through this stunning performance of N o t h i n g T h a t I s N o t T h e r e from Nora Gibson Contemporary Ballet. Physics, object oriented ontology, beauty, and essence crystallize in this ambient work for 8 dancers. Blurring the line between art and science, this 50-minute work was created in part during a residency at Kaatsbaan International Dance Center in Tivoli, New York, and is the culmination of a physics-based study by an aerospace mechanical engineer, Dr. Leslie Lamberson, of Drexel University, and choreographer, Nora Gibson. (this performance runs 50 minutes without intermission) This work was made with support from Drexel University and the collaboration with Dr. Leslie Lamberson's Dynamic Multifunctional Materials Laboratory.
