The Nature of Why

"When you are asking 'why?', you have to be in some framework that allows something to be true." Richard Feynman

The Nature of Why brings together dance and live music into an epic and beautiful performance. Featuring a cinematic live-score from Goldfrapp's Will Gregory, an ensemble of musicians from the acclaimed British Paraorchestra and four extraordinary dancers.

Bristol Old Vic's stage will become a site of discovery, as dancers and musicians move as one and audience and performer meet. 

This world premiere takes inspiration from the unconventional curiosity of Nobel prize-winning theoretical physicist Richard Feynman, and his search for meaning in the world around us. The Nature of Why promises to be an up-close-and-personal dance experience like no other. 

The Nature of Why is choreographed by Caroline Bowditch (Adventures of SnigelFalling In Love With Frida), with direction by Bowditch and Charles Hazlewood, The British Paraorchestra's Artistic Director.
