We are Nerd Nite Tokyo, bringing geeks and drinks together in the Kanto region since June 2016!
Nerd Nite: science x theatre is coming March 11-12!
Tickets are available at YTG.jp!
How do you act out nanoscale Brownian motion? Can you fit a model of a satellite on stage? What kind of costume conveys ‘artificial life’? Actors and playwrights will face questions like these in March when they embark on “science x theatre”, a bold experiment of the Yokohama Theatre Group and Nerd Nite Tokyo. Science will be the message, but theatre is the medium: what are the implications of science, how does it affect real people, and what are these experiments and discoveries all about?
This show emerges from discussions between scientists and theatre teams, who have one week to create their plays, blending fact and fiction. The scientific presentations will precede each play when they are performed on March 11 and 12.
When science meets theatre, expect big ideas, big bangs, and maybe even some laughs.
Be there and be square!
About Nerd Nite
Nerd Nite is “the Discovery Channel with beer”, a worldwide monthly event series that mixes presentations, performances, trivia, demos, music, and of course drinking. Nerd Nite Tokyo events are held in English.
Get involved (we want you!)
If you are interested in presenting or volunteering, send us an email (email@example.com), message us on Facebook (fb.com/nerdnitetokyo) or send a DM on Twitter (@nntokyo). You do not have to be a (science) presentation pro! Anyone — scientists, engineers, artists, makers, hackers, historians, science fans or storytellers — can give a talk at Nerd Nite about their own projects or just anything they find cool. Our past speakers include a medieval sword expert, artificial intelligence researchers, a hackerspace guru, a videogame artist and a nuclear physicist.
