Workshop #17
  • COMING SOON
European Performing Science Night

Open Call

Will we be forced to migrate to the new plastic continents to survive?

Are the survival strategies of viruses similar to ours?

Is there linguistic convergence when we live similar experiences?

Are there coincidences between the study of the isolation of elementary particles and our own confinements?

Can we alter the stereotypes anchored in the mind through the performing arts?

 

We are open!

 

We are looking for artists, scientists and technologists for our new face-to-face workshop!

The call is part of the European Performing Science Night project in collaboration with research groups from the UAB, UOC, IGTP, UB and AMU, and co-financed by the EU.

The workshop will take place at the facilities of the Fundación Épica La Fura dels Baus from September 13 to 25.

You will be part of a unique co-creation process led by Fundación Épica La Fura dels Baus that will culminate in a final performance based on experiments and scientific challenges proposed by more than 20 researchers and tested by an active audience.

Contribute with your talents and skills in order to explore the limits of knowledge and discover new forms of creation that address challenges related to  neurolinguistic convergence, the transmission of viruses and infectious diseases, the climate emergency or even the ability to manipulate stereotypes and viewers’ trust.

In addition to the creative work, the results of the workshop will be useful to the invited experts to make inquiries in their fields of work,  giving them the opportunity to refine simulation algorithms and make a contribution to social welfare.

The registration period is from June 7 to July 15.
