Curie Me Away! - The Musical Life Story of Madame Marie Curie
April 14, 2018
Greetings MN educators! You and your students are invited to this award-winning musical based on the science, life and discoveries of Madame Marie Curie, one night only April 14 at the Bryant Lake Bowl!
Matheatre is a touring performing arts company offering creative access points to science and math. Curie Me Away! weaves core chemistry concepts into compelling lyrical metaphor to tell the extraordinary life story of Madame Marie Curie, a pioneer in the field of Physical Chemistry. Written in collaboration with a chemistry professor, this original musical packs a scientific punch while reaching across disciplines to offer inspiration and insight to students of history, womens studies and social studies. Curie Me Away! has performed for the National Atomic Testing Museum (part of the Smithsonian Institution) and won a "Best of Fest" award at the Great Salt Lake Fringe Festival.
From growing up in Russian occupied Poland, where the higher education of women was a punishable crime, to rocking the world as the first woman to win the Nobel Prize, "Curie Me Away!" is the radical story of a persistent woman who changed our understanding of the universe. We hope you can join us for this ONE NIGHT ONLY event: Saturday, April 14 at 7pm at the Bryant Lake Bowl, 810 W. Lake Street.
