Say the word “improv,” and images of stages and theaters flutter to the top of the mind. But what role does improvisation play in other fields? How do spur-of-the-moment decisions influence visual art or shape science? These are the types of questions that will be at the heart of “Improvisation,” Buffalo’s next Science & Art Cabaret.
The event will feature an eclectic cast of artists and academics who will give informal talks and presentations on themes that range from “chemical imagination” to “instrument design.” There will be a cash bar.
Quirky, intellectual and fun, the cabaret is an ongoing collaborative program between Hallwalls Contemporary Arts Center, UB and the Buffalo Museum of Science. Individual “cabarets” are held several times a year, with each bringing together an unusual mishmash of speakers from divergent fields to talk about a common theme. Full event details here.
