To gain awareness of the potential for communicating science through an artistic experience and to challenge habitual ways of thinking.
Scientists depend heavily on powerpoint to express scientific concepts visually and these presentations can become monotonous. By using dance, movement and gesture to explore ideas for a presentation, researchers can open up a new realm of creative ways to conceptualise abstract concepts.
This course will help participants understand how music and movement can open new possibilities for innovative thinking, while enhancing their body language awareness.
The course consists of several sessions. You should be able to attend all of them.
Participants should come with a scientific idea that they would like to explore in movement and send a short summary (no more than 150 words) before the workshop.
