Scottish Superwomen Of Science – Minerva Scientifica (Electric Voice Theatre)

By | Published on Saturday 19 August 2017

High-spirited and entertaining best describes the tone of this show; these questing, dynamic Scotswomen spring to life in front of the audience, wanting to be heard and to pass on their discoveries and experiences. Through first-class acting, singing and a recorded soundscape including original compositions, Frances M Lynch brings us face to face with some incredible women. From Williamina Fleming, who narrowly escaped destitution to discover 200 stars as an astronomer at the Boston Observatory, to Victoria Drummond-Errol, a decorated World War II marine engineer forced to go to Panama for promotion, and many more. ‘Minerva Scientifica’ is an ongoing collaboration between prominent figures in science and the arts and this is apparent from the quality of the show – be moved by the music and learn about science.

Valvona & Crolla, until 27 Aug.
