We were never scientists from the start and we never will be. Despite this, we are on a mission to understand the science in its vastness, and we invite you to watch us try to capture and swallow it whole, holding it close to us when we feel alone at night. This is BIG SCIENCE, a brand new devised performance, created for you by Hot Kitchen.

The collective’s newest performance, BIG SCIENCE, will re-purpose text, imagery, and movement from the scientific field as a mode of communication with their spectator; juxtaposed with their own essays and writings on life. It is an adventure through the cosmos; a blast-off into the unknown, and a journey to find out if dark matter really does exist.

Directed by Jiana Estes & Audrey Polinski 

Devised with Lindsey Barlag Thornton, Kaylyn Carter, Claudia Castillo, Carol Crosby, Katelyn Douglass, Katie Friedman, Alex Hovi, Wade Howard, Jasmine Henri Jordan, and Andy Slavin.
