The Principle Of Uncertainty (Arditodesìo Company)

By | Published on Monday 5 August 2013

Prepare for a science lesson which will leave you dabbing your eyes. Not being a science-whiz meant some of the lecture was a little too complicated for me, but the connection formed between science and emotion is certainly thought-provoking. The first musical interlude gave me goosebumps, whilst the rest are cleverly used to bring to life the thoughts the professor is withholding from the audience. With the use of small props and anecdotes Professor Lapage embeds questions in our minds throughout, as he develops a more personal story. As the scientific world clashes with our own emotions the audience can’t help but empathise with the vulnerable academic, but what is the tragic tale Professor Lapage slowly reveals?

Summerhall, until 25 Aug, 6.15pm.
