Artist Talk : Playwright Vivienne Glance talks about performing science and her play 'The Cat in the Box' Other events...
Artist Talk with Vivienne Glance Playwright and actor Vivienne Glance has been fascinated by science for many years, but incorporating science into creative works presents particular challenges. Her main interest is how science is depicted in performance which has been the topic of her recently completed PhD research. Vivienne will talk about the dramaturgy behind science plays, why she thinks it is important that artists tackle science and technology in their work, why audiences seem to love it or hate it, and the delights and challenges scientific themes present to playwrights. Her latest play The Cat in the Box is an absurd comedy with a dose of quantum mechanics. The play premieres at the Blue Room Theatre on 2nd August. For more details please visit www.blueroom.org.au. Hosted by John Aitken. Presented by Stages WA in association with the AWG.
