"Nikola Tesla" from Matheatre: August 19th
Electricity pioneer Nikola Tesla's role model was a brilliant inventor who was also an uneducated, illiterate housewife: his mother Djuka. Djuka tinkered, experimented and invented, making a science of the domestic sphere. This musical exploration of Djuka and her most famous invention--her son Nikola--tells of the magnetic push and pull of family bonds, the branching currents of freedom and choices, and balancing surprising sources of energy.
Matheatre uses live theatre to tell stories that inspire excitement about math and science. Bainbridge Island last saw Matheatre in 2017 with performances of Curie Me Away! and Tesla Ex Machina at Rolling Bay Hall. Nikola Tesla and the Mother of Invention is a brand new work, based on the same research but telling Tesla's story from a very different perspective--so if you saw a previous play about Tesla, this is something new! Matheatre are the creators of STEM-based stage musicals Curie Me Away!, Calculus: The Musical! and Voyagers as well asView more
