This Week (6/30-7/6)

1. Adele Myers and Dancers

Location: Bryan Center Reynolds indurstry Theater
Contact: Sarah Tondu
Inspired in part by Adele Myers' attempt to get over her fear of falling by enrolling in trapeze school, Einstein's Happiest Thought is a multi-disciplinary work that delves into the charged physical states of risk and anticipation. The title refers to a thought experiment that Einstein claimed led to the happiest thought of his life, about the different ways we experience the same amount of time and space in relation to gravity. Balances look precarious, and dancers examine concepts of falling: falling down, falling over, falling in love, falling into debt.
