Einstein and Niels Bohr... A Fairy Tale
December 4, 2010 @ 12:00 am EST
Einstein and Niels Bohr, the two giants of 20th century physics, are celebrated for their mighty minds, but their lives are far richer. They were both reared with fairy tales so they learned at an early age to believe impossible things. That faith in wonder carried over to their work in physics and nurtured a sensibility that found expression in things large and small over the course of their lives. The theatre piece shares stories that include their thoughts and practice about children, education, peace and justice, walking, sailing, and their work habits -- all grounded in their devotion to fairness, beauty, and playfulness.
