WHAT DO YOU GET WHEN YOU COMBINE MATHS AND THEATRE?
an EVEN BIGGER BANG.
This is the true story of how the world came to be.
M, I and U are variables that live in a triangle. Controlled by an external, unseen voice, they explore their world. Three is all they know - three sides of their world, three variables, three words... When a tetrahedron appears, they are amazed to find a. fourth. side.
When they realize that their known world - the triangle - is not all there is, things begin to crumble... Where does that external voice come from? Can they disobey the voice? Can they break the rules of their world? Can they… maybe… LEAVE the triangle?
Written and directed by Diana Vallverdu i Cabrera and devised with ANTS Theatre, 3+D is an earnest, clowning pursuit for answers, using maths to breakdown the rules of the world as we know it.
