In its pilot season (Nov 2009 - June 2010), our CST members entered the world of Stolen Chair's genre-defying Quantum Poetics: A Science Experiment for the Stage. Over the course of the season, CST members were treated to:
Guest lecture on "Science and Theatre: What Can They Teach Each Other?" by physicist Dr. Gabriel Cwilich, scientific advisor to the Ensemble Studio Theater (EST) and the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation.
Sneak peeks into the script development and the rehearsal process throughout the season, with performed retreat highlights, a staged reading, and open rehearsal.
Science animator Odd Todd screening some of his cartoon collaborations with Radiolab's Robert Krulwich for NPR and ABC.
New York's most scientastic Valentine's Day party: "Atoms and Eves". Entertainment included altering senses with a taste-tripping miracle fruit experience, an unlicensed phrenologist, folding molecular origami, "neurotransmitter" shots.
A game of Quantum B-I-N-G-O, showing some of the theatrical and scientific building blocks that went into the piece's creation.
Post-show talk back panel with Dr. Gabriel Cwilich and Tim Maudlin, Author of Truth and Paradox and The Metaphysics within Physics
A member's only online social network filled with exclusive Stolen Chair and Quantum Poetics content: a feedback forum, video, photos, podcasts, and more.
Field trips to NYC's most exciting science-themed cultural offerings, including a neuroscience talk about optical illusions at the scientastic Secret Science Club and a panel of quantum physicists and performance artists hosted by PS122.
Wine and themed gourmet snacks at each meet-up.
