About this event

Extraordinary life-size puppetry, an electrifying set of shadow and light and a filmic score combine for a unique piece about a female physicist fighting to get her voice heard. Award-winning Smoking Apples (CELL, In Our Hands) team up with TEA Films (Royal Court, Battersea Arts Centre) to create a bespoke film-version of Flux.

(Audio Description and Captions are available)

Meet Kate: a physicist in the male-dominated labs of the 1980s. With a trademark perm and HUGE glasses, follow Kate as she discovers her potential as a cutting edge scientist.

As the pounding beats of her records crash and the elements of her personal life collide, Kate is in a spin.

With extraordinary puppetry, an electrifying set of shadow and light and a filmic score, Flux journeys into the kaleidoscope of Kate’s mind; the neon glow, the radioactive tunes and the ride of a lifetime.

Flux is inspired by the work of female scientists and has been developed with Shoreditch Town Hall, Oxford Playhouse, Arts at the Old Fire Station, Cornerstone Arts, Brewery Arts Centre and the Institute of Physics.
