Particle Wave back in Melbourne!

Particle/Wave is back in Melbourne during National Science Week for two shows on Saturday August 17th, 7pm and 9pm!

Scienceworks, 2 Booker Street, Spotswood


'The event is dazzling, with beautiful visual graphics interspersed with poetry, sound art and scientific theory ... it effortlessly demonstrates the beauty in science.' — Dotti Mazga, The Plus Ones

Particle/Wave sees poets, musicians, sound and video artists joining forces with renowned scientists to interpret the theories of gravitational waves, which Stephen Hawking has called ‘a completely new way of looking at the universe.’

Recently screened during the Melbourne International Arts Festival to critical acclaim and sold out audiences, Particle/Wave returns for National Science Week, alongside a snapshot and Q&A on Gravitational Waves via a special guest speaker to be announced.

The 2017 Nobel Prize for Physics was awarded for the breakthroughs that led to the decisive detection of the gravitational waves that surround us all of the time.

Directed by Alicia Sometimes, Particle/Wave combines art and science into a compelling show that explores these elusive forces we cannot see.

The event also features entry to the Scienceworks exhibition Beyond Perception: Seeing the Unseen, aimed at young adults. Exploring the imperceptible worlds of science and technology, this ground-breaking exhibition looks deeper, and sees further than ever before. Beyond Perception was developed in collaboration with both an advisory board of young people engaged with STEM subjects, and a selection of researchers and engineers from Victoria's top research and institutions.
