Karl Schaffer's choreography draws on the women's theories, circular movements and the Escher-like patterns of tessalated imagery to bring the heroines of mathematics to life, beginning with Hypatia, the ancient astronomer, teacher and politician who was killed by a Christian mob. Music and choreography by contemporary female mathematicians Vi Hart and sarah-marie belcastro rounds out the evening which also features choreography by dancersJ Purcell, Caires and Real.
