NAC English Theatre

Theatre and Physics Symposium


English Theatre’s fall presentations set the stage for the Theatre and Physics Symposium. Featuring the quantum physics-inspired works Copenhagen, Frequencies and Entangled, the Symposium will also offer NAC audiences a series of parallel conversations sparked by the plays, culminating in a five-day, world-expanding, mind-bending investigation led by modern physics’ greatest thought leaders, moderated by the host of CBC Ideas, Nahlah Ayed.

This Symposium will seek to uncover the links between the most fascinating and intangible aspects of physics and the human psyche, and to locate these at the intersection of mind and matter – the black hole of the human heart.
