An immersive multimedia experience in the planetarium dome.

Particle/Wave sees poets, musicians, sound and video artists joining forces with renowned scientists to interpret the theories of gravitational waves, which Stephen Hawking has called “a completely new way of looking at the universe.”

The 2017 Nobel Prize for Physics was awarded for the breakthroughs that led to the decisive detection of the gravitational waves that surround us all of the time.

Directed by Alicia Sometimes, Particle/Wave combines art and science into a compelling show that explores these elusive forces we cannot see.

Suitable for ages 16+. There is a complete lockout for this performance.
