INFO

Dancers and Scientists from the US get together to bring together scientific and artistic routes to creativity.

Starting April 25th, the National Centre for Biological Sciences (NCBS), Bangalore will play host to a week-long collaboration between professional dancers and biologists, in “Bodystorming Hits Bangalore.” Bodystorming is brainstorming with the physical world—thinking not just with minds but with bodies. In this iteration, problems of scientific research will be investigated through the structured movements of human dancers. The dancers, in turn, use the dynamics of scientific problems as new outlets for artistic exploration. This method was developed by biomedical engineer David Odde and dancer/choreographer Carl Flink (both at the University of Minnesota), who will working with eight dancers from the Minnesota-based Black Label Movement, selected dancers from India and scientists from NCBS over an intense 8-day program.
