Best of BE – Spain. 20 OCT-09 NOV Be Festival

Waiting for Schrödinger by Timothy and the Things (Hungary, 30 min)

Translating scientific hypotheses into real-life connections. Referenced in this show’s title, Schrödinger’s cat is a thought experiment where an interpretation of quantum mechanics is applied to human interactions: based around a cat that may be simultaneously both alive and dead, it’s a state known as a quantum superposition. This show puts that hypothesis into new contexts; colliding and interacting in a tense, slowly plotted arc of interrelated movements, the show’s five dancers appear abstract and human at the same time. Choreographer László Fülöp is based in Budapest, developing dance projects that explore the spaces between psychology and performance.

A 30 minute version of the show will be presented
