The Daughters of Hypatia is a dance concert celebrating great mathematical women throughout history and their struggles to create groundbreaking mathematics. The concert tells their stories with playful dances exploring circular motifs, colorful projection of live video mosaics, young girls’ complex clapping games, surprising audience interactions, and more. The four dancers, Jane Real, Saki, Lila Salhov, and Laurel Shastri recount intriguing stories from the women’s lives and perform dances inspired by their mathematical work. Shorter school matinees will be given during the week of performance at West End Studio Theatre in Santa Cruz. This is the latest work integrating dance and mathematics by choreographer Karl Schaffer.

The concert will be performed Fri., 4/11 at 8 PM, Sat., 4/12 at 2 PM and 8 PM, and Sun., 4/13 at 2 PM. Tickets are available in advance (it is a small theater, buy tickets in advance!) at Hypatia.TicketLeap.com. There will be school matinees during the preceding week, 4/7 to 4/11, but contact us for more details.
