Join SYREN Modern Dance as they bring their hit piece to Boston for one night only, only at the Museum of Science!

"Ticktock" debuted in June 2019 in the heart of Manhattan as part of the Bryant Park Contemporary Dance Series. A collaboration between astrophysicist Paul M. Sutter, PhD, and SYREN Modern Dance, "Ticktock" is a revolutionary investigation of time. The 45-minute performance is an exploration of scientific concepts rooted in physics, but illustrated through the lens of dance. Dr. Sutterʼs vivid narration of SYRENʼs highly physical sequences interweaves Einsteinʼs theories of special and general relativity, timekeeping and horology, memory, the arrow of time, time dilation, gravity, and perception of time.

"Ticktock" is choreographed by Kate St. Amand to music composed by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart (Symphony No. 29 in A Major). The production is performed by Paul Sutter, Rivkins Christopher, Victoria Ellis, Jessica Nolan, Darcie Perkins, and Lynn Peterson. Additional collaborator: Maria Ozmen, costume designer.

The creation of Ticktock was made possible by support from New York City's Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council, The Ohio State University Division of Social and Behavioral Science, The Ohio State University Department of Psychology, The STEAM Factory at OSU, WCBE, Greater Columbus Arts Council, Aleph Fund, and Particle Fever Athletic.

This program is free, thanks to the generosity of the Lowell Institute.
