Performance "Diffusive Bodies"

Sunday, 26 February 2023, 18:00 and Monday, 27 February 2023, 19:00

Venue: Main Ceremonial Hall, University of Vienna, Universitätsring 1, 1010 Wien

The Science Communication Project Diffusive Bodies that combines dance with physics, is finishing with 2 performances at the Main Ceremonial Hall of the University of Vienna.

How could we transfer physical concepts like coherence, (dis-)continuity, superposition, absorption or diffusion into the language of dance?

How could we project physical observations from the microscopic world to the macro level of dancing bodies?

For this purpose, Katharina Holzweber, professional dancer and physicist, has accompanied 7 dancers and 5 dance students from the Music and Arts University of Vienna (MUK) in the winter term 2022/23 choreographically as well as scientifically to create a full-length dance piece on the basis of physical concepts and perspectives. 

The Science Communication Project Diffusive Bodies WKP 161 is a cooperation project between the University of Vienna and the MUK and is funded by the Austrian Science Fund FWF. 

You will find more detailed information in the flyer as well as in the letter of invitation, and a foretaste of the event in the trailer.
