We would like to inform that the Robotic Theatre will remain closed from April 29, 2017 until further notice.
The scenario for the play was based on the 19th century short story by Edwin A. Abbott: “Flatland. A Romance of Many Dimensions”. The character of the story – the Square from the Flatland – begins his journey to the third dimension. Things that we (living in 3-dimention world) consider normal and obvious occur to the Square as incredible, unimaginable, mysterious and wonderful, similarly to how incredible the 4-dimention objects seem to people (though mathematicians can describe space in any dimension).
Our show is an attempt to tell the story about these multi-dimensional worlds. The teenage characters of the play – Tomek and Zosia – will find out about the possibility of the worlds existence as such. They will be surprised by the inexplicable (as it may seem) problem of the “vanished” pen. The mystery will be the beginning of the fantastic journey in the worlds of various dimensions the children will be taken to by their uncle Edwin – the character joining the features of a competent teacher and a smart and kind friend. He is a true thinker who can “obtain” answers for difficult questions about the nature of space and the fact of dimensionality.
The show has an educational purpose. Therefore, the focus will be brought to the clarity of the performance, even at the cost of stylistic ease and visual impressiveness. Due to the level of knowledge in geometry necessary for the understanding of the lecture, the show is intended for the students of the final grades of the primary school and the students of the first grade of the middle school (aged: 11-15).
