Science in dance’ is a 60′ long format designed to promote science-people interaction through dance. The audience is introduced by a storyteller to the science underlying the dance. The choreographer starts the casting randomly picking-up performers from the public; then she/he teaches them easy-to-learn movements and set up basic scenography equipment. Music is around, possibly live. After few rehearsals, the group performs. For nephews’ memories, videos/pics are shared with participants.
