I Love Science Festival @ BOZAR - The Principle of Uncertainty

Well, after Rwanda we are now heading to Brussels, Belgium where we'll be part of the I Love Science Festival at BOZAR, the most important Cultural Center of the city.

The Principle of Uncertainty "Unplugged" will be staged on Saturday April 28th at 20.30 and Sunday April 29th at 14.00. It is a great opportunity for us to showcase our work at a very exciting event filled with great speakers and performances, workshops, Virtual Reality tours, Music, Installations, Performance Lectures... and much more.

We read in the description of the Festival...

During the ‘I Love Science’ festival BOZAR devotes three whole days to an investigation into the links between art and science, some very real, others purely hypothetical. Through a series of exhibitions, workshops, lectures, debates, experimental walks and musical performances the festival looks at the fames and failures of scientists, artists and theatre makers. Explore the notion of Time at a performance-reading, or delve into the virtual reality in the BOZAR LAB. Sign up for a talk on artificial intelligence or take an immersive trip through pop-up smells and sounds of the city. The BOZAR When Art Meets Science Festival is all about experience + experimentation + connection!
