The group gathered at the residence to begin the process of researching the possibilities of creative collaboration between visual-theatre artists and quantum physicists. The result (as planned, it should be a result of several collaborative sessions of which this was the first) would be a contemporary visual-theatre performance (combining puppets, objects, circus, magic, etc.) which would translate the quantum-physics’ research and discoveries into the language of theatrical images and dramatic collisions, available for understanding to the most-general audiences.
