Physics and Dance: An Open Reading and Book Signing With Emily Coates and Sarah Demers SOLD OUT

Please join us for an open reading and book signing of Emily Coates and Sarah Demers’ exciting new book, Physics and Dance, in the Live Arts Lobby. Featuring demos from Yvonne RainerPatricia HoffbauerLacina Coulibaly, and Daniel UlbrichtFree to the public – please RSVP.

From stepping out of our beds each morning to admiring the stars at night, we live in a world of motion, energy, space, and time. How do we understand the phenomena that shape our experience? How do we make sense of our physical realities? Two guides—a former member of New York City Ballet, Emily Coates, and CERN particle physicist Sarah Demers—show us how their respective disciplines can help us to understand both the quotidian and the deepest questions about the universe.

Requiring no previous knowledge of dance or physics, this introduction covers the fundamentals while revealing how a dialogue between art and science can enrich our appreciation of both. Readers will come away with a broad cultural knowledge of Newtonian to quantum mechanics and classical to contemporary dance.

Including problem sets and choreographic exercises to solidify understanding, this book will be of interest to anyone curious about physics or dance.
