Scientific lectures. media art. dry ice cocktails
Talk by Nobel Prize winner Didier Queloz
How many Earth-like planets are out there? How many solar systems? How did planets form and why? Is our place in the Universe special? Can we find signatures of life in the cosmos? What are the challenges in the search for habitable planets?
Collaboration with Teater Fantast
DATA DATA: a theatre play
Science & Cocktails is proud to announce a collaboration with Teater Fantast on the development of the theatre play DATA DATA funded by the Novo Nordisk Foundation.
Grandma can remember an earlier time. Dad sighs nostalgically if someone says: "Commodore 64" and the child has grown up with pacifiers and iPads. The computer has taken over our world in a few generations. It is an indispensable tool in the digital reality we find ourselves in. And we depend on it, both collectively and individually. But do we really understand what it is? This super calculator that we use all the time? With guidance from computer experts and professors, Teater Fantast has created a musical, informative and entertaining performance for the whole family. Join us on a journey through the history of computing, where we promise data, digital gadgets and gizmos. Man, machine and mathematics. Laugh, cry and gigabytes.
The play is created as a family performance for the whole family - both children, teenagers and adults (minimum age 6 years).
The development of Quantum Computers is moving and it is moving fast. Charles Marcus is one of the scientists pushing things forwards and holding the strings. In this episode of the Science & Cocktails Podcast, he is telling us that this is a huge step for humanity and it might change the world. (see all podcasts here)
Collaboration with the Recoil Performance Group
Act of Gravity
Funded by the Novo Nordisk Foundation, Science & Cocktails is collaborating with Recoil Performance Group in the production of an original dance performance Act of Gravity inspired by gravitational physics and the multiverse. Other collaborators include string theorists from the University of Amsterdam and KU Leuven and astrophysicists from the Niels Bohr Institute. Act of Gravity has been presented at Science & Cocktails events in June 2022 at the Grey Hall, Copenhagen. The second edition will take place in Aarhus in September 2020 (image credits: Søren Meisner). See more about Act of Gravity here.
