CfP: Theatre about Science

This conference intends to map and reflect on the intersections between theatre and science, promote fruitful exchanges, enlarge the knowledge in the field, trace the evolution of previous trends, and identify future directions.

We welcome contributions on theatre about science, including from artistic practice and science communication. We intend to understand where they meet (and where they don’t), eventually enlightening both common and diverse motivations and perspectives, and provoking fruitful discussions.
