PONTIO LAUNCH EXPERIMENTAL THEATRE FIRST
CEREBELLIUM SET TO CHALLENGE PERCEPTIONS
Pontio is set to unveil Cerebellium - an experimental theatre first for Bangor described as 'theatre of the mind'.
To celebrate the Bangor Science Festival, as part of National Science and Engineering Week, Pontio has collaborated with Bangor University’s School of Psychology and The Republic of the Imagination to create a labyrinth of weird and wonderful sensory illusions in a disused laboratory.
In this unique installation created by psychology professor Guillaume Thierry, theatre director Iwan Brioc and a team of Bangor University students, visitors are invited to become part of a mind-blowing experiment where reality is not always what it seems.
The team have taken over an old chemistry laboratory in the Williams Charles Evans building off Deiniol Road in Bangor. Performances lasting approximately 45 minutes will take place every evening during Bangor Science Week 13 – 16 March 2012.
Pontio's arts development officer Dyfan Roberts said:
“This is theatre like no other - the stage really is your brain.
“This is an example of how Pontio is bringing together the arts with the world of science to create something unique.
“Cerebellium will explore optical and cognitive illusions through this production. Audiences should be ready to have their expectations and perceptions challenged – but they will learn something about themselves too along the way.”
