Call for participation for the “European Performing Science Night”

Led by the Fundació Èpica-La Fura dels Baus and with the participation of the LPL (AMU-CNRS-ILCB) and four other partners, a research team will organize several events during the prestigious European Research Night on 24 September 2021, in Badalone (Catalonia). The project - co-financed under the Marie Skłodowska-Curie actions - aims to bring scientists closer to the general public through an innovative language based on the performing arts and new language tools for researchers.

For the first workshop to be held from June 29 to July 1, three members of the LPL and of the LPP Paris will be present in Badalone: Clément François (LPL), Thierry Legou (LPL) and Léonardo Lancia (LPP).

A call for participation has been launched for artists, scientists and technologists for our new face-to-face workshop which will take place at the Fundación Épica La Fura dels Baus from September 13 to 25.
