Science communication that engages the heart as well as the mind. Two scientists turned performers, Giulia and Richard, share their passion for the fun, wild ideas hiding in science’s back catalogue. From fire to water, thermodynamics to the Twin Paradox, four stories will materialise to kickstart scientific wonder. Our stories anthropomorphise the scientific world, giving atoms personalities to explain their behaviour, adding emotions to chemical reactions and inserting the idiosyncrasies of science into the day-to-day. We will reawaken the curiosity that your science teacher crushed.
