DNA testing, fingerprints, UV lamps and 3D printers: How do they fit in with police work, and how does this science become art? Throughout March, the Science ReActors group take to the “Ifigeneia” stage of the Hellenic Cosmos Cultural Centre to present their “Science Lab Crime” show, and provide answers to exactly those questions.
Filled with mystery, humor and scientific paradoxes, the performance invites audiences to consider how science is present in their everyday tasks, and to look at it in a different light.
ReActors’ coordinator, Eleni Grammatikopoulou, makes note of how “all group members are scientists, this is the requirement for anyone wanting to be involved. This is something that usually surprises the audience, since everyone thinks they will see an amateur show, seeing as how the participants are professional scientists, but amateur actors. However, this is an extremely thought-out, professional work, featuring original music, unique visual art, and a professional director, Kostas Vrettos.”
Written by Anna Christodoulou, the play features Anthoula Siachami, Christina Skoulikidou, Christos Lymperopoulos, Kostas Karpouzis, Chryssanthi Saliagkopoulou, Vassia Kouremenou, Eirini Ligielli, Athanassis Koustenis, Nikos Papadimitriou, Giorgos Vagiakis, and Stavros Dimitrakoudis.
