ArtPlay Presents: MoveSpeakSpin-Daughters of Hypatia

October 24, 2015 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm

| $11

The Santa Cruz, California-based dance company MoveSpeakSpin honors the often-overlooked contributions of women to mathematics in an ensemble piece titled, The Daughters of Hypatia: Circles of Mathematical Women. The dancers recount intriguing stories from the lives of the foremothers of mathematics, as well as leading contemporaries in the field, performing patterns suggestive of the mathematicians’ work. Choreographer Karl Schaffer, who is also a mathematician, uses live projections of video mosaics of dancers, thanks to software created by Kevin Lee. The production features geometric art designs by Marjorie Rice, guest choreography by Sarah-Marie Belcastro, and musical compositions by Zambra, Vi Hart, and Victor Spiegel. » For 25 years, MoveSpeakSpin has been creating groundbreaking dance performances linking mathematics and dance with humor, playfulness, and physicality. Members of the company have performed at international events, including the opening of the National Museum of Mathematics in New York City and a conference on math and the arts in Seoul, Korea.
