PARTICLE/WAVE is an immersive multimedia celebration of the discovery of gravitational waves that combines poetry, video art, live music and science.
First observed in 2015, gravitational waves are ripples in space-time, traveling away from exploding stars, merging black holes and other cosmological phenomena. Physicist Stephen Hawking called them ‘a completely new way of looking at the universe.’
A mind-expanding collaboration of artists and internationally renowned scientists, PARTICLE/WAVE offers a unique lens into this incredible discovery. Following a sell-out season at the Melbourne Festival 2018, PARTICLE/WAVE will look deep into the universe under the spectacular dome of the Sir Thomas Brisbane Planetarium.
“It’s a show that’s at once spectacular and intimate, bringing home the confounding mysteries of the universe”
Alison Croggon – Witness Performance
