The Principle of Uncertainty staged in Colorado

We are very pleased and proud to announce that our play The Principle of Uncertainty will soon be staged in the U.S.
Here are the details:
Zephyr Stage at Cavalcade in Fruita, Colorado is in rehearsal for its next production - The Principle of Uncertainty by Andrea Brunello! A professor of physics reveals, during a lecture on Schrödinger's cat, and the behavior of light, an awestruck wonder for the beauty of the universe and also a private, closely-held grief. The play is beautiful, tender, poignant, funny, profound, and brilliant, and it will take you to the very heart of the quantum mystery and leave you dazzled! The original play was written and performed within the Jet Propulsion Theatre Project, www.jetpropulsiontheatre.org. This one-woman show features Zephyr Stage's Executive Artistic Director Valerie Haugen Nuzzo. Nuzzo recently co-wrote and directed "Multitudes" about the American poet Walt Whitman. She’s performed in more than 50 productions, over 20 years, with Thunder River Theatre Company in Carbondale, including playing all the big Greek girls - Lysistrata, Medea and Antigone. Performance dates for the Principle of Uncertainty are Jan. 19-21, 26-27, 2018. Performances take place at Cavalcade in Fruita, Colorado. Show times are 7:30 p.m. except for the Sunday matinee at 2 p.m. Find Zephyr Stage at Cavalcade on Facebook or Twitter or online at www.zephyrstage.com.

Le Principe de l’Incertitude

The Principle of Uncertainty with a french accent? Much more than that!

Thanks to a grant from the King Baudouin Foundation we have been able to produce an “unplugged” version of our very succesful play “The Principle of Uncertainty”. On stage is the belgian actor Vincent Vanderbeeken and the translation from English to French has been done by Pierre Echard. Directing is done by Andrea Brunello.

Rehearsals started in mid October 2017 and they will continue on and off till the premiere which is expected to be in March 2018. The work is proceeding very well, Vincent is an exciting actor and the Principle of Uncertainty "a la francaise” is quite exciting...


Pale Blue Dot reviews

Pale Blue Dot is JPT's third production, dated November 2015. This time we abandon the more "physics" related topics of the previous two productions (The Principle of Uncertainty and Taking out Grandpa) to move towards a topic of more social concern (the environment, climate change). Of course, in full JPT spirit, the play is about the human side of science and so we talk about the impact of space exploration on the view that we have of our won Mother Earth.
The play has been performed bot in Italian and English in several EU countries.

Here are some reviews:

Taking out Grandpa reviews

Taking out Grandpa is JPT's second production, dated 2014. It was constructed with the idea of expanding on the "storytelling" style that had been explored with The Principle of Uncertainty. On stage two actors (Roberto Abbiati - the Augusto Clown and Andrea Brunello - the White Clown) play with concepts like time, entropy, relativity and quantum mechanics...

Here are some excerpts from the press reviews.

“…Exceptional performance by the two actors that have conquered, more than once, big open stage applause, and that have turned their show into a big celebration of life and of the “present” time.” Michela Bottanelli - Persinsala.it

“The two actors have transmitted knowledge and joyfulness (…) and they were rewarded with long and warm applause.” Antonia Dalpiaz - L’Adige

“It is theatre but it is also science, culture, but most of all emotion. (…) A very funny, poetic, addictive and extravagant way to ponder upon physics, to investigate the human side of science.” Vincenzo Sardelli - Scuola e Amministrazione
