The Rat in Ratatouille, the fish in Finding Nemo, the robot in WALL-E, and the curly-haired redhead in 2012’s Brave were all created by mathematicians manipulating the most sophisticated tools on the cutting edge of computer technology, computational physics, geometry and approximation theory. Join Tony DeRose, Senior Scientist and lead of the Research Group at PIXAR Animation Studios, as he uses examples from PIXAR’s feature films to provide a behind-the-scenes glimpse of the role math plays in the digital revolution taking place in film today. For example, for the curly red hair on the heroine in 2012’s Brave, PIXAR published a memo about the high-level math behind it that explained, “To satisfy the artistic requirement of maintaining the curl’s helical shape during motion, we proposed a hair model based upon an extensible elastic rod.” Tony will be introduced by Ira Flatow, Host and Executive Producer of National Public Radio’s popular Science Friday radio program (6:30 pm only).

'As You Like It' - The New Victory Theater
March 07, 2013 - Midtown

A great introduction for children who may be unfamiliar with Shakespeare's works, this play is lighthearted and fun, concluding with the message that all humans need love. Performed by New York's The Acting Company and directed by Pig Iron Theatre Company's Dan Rothenberg, the inspiration behind this particular performance comes from the popular children's book "Where The Wild Things Are" by Maurice Sendak. Here's more information from the press release: New York's The Acting Company, a TONY Honors Recipient for Excellence in Theater, brings Shakespeare's lushly lighthearted comedy 'As You Like It' to The New Victory Theater as part of their 40th anniversary season. Directed by Pig Iron Theatre Company's Dan Rothenberg, 'As You Like It' by The Acting Company will make its New York Premiere at The New Victory Theater, 209 West 42nd Street, from March 1-10, 2013. The Acting Company debuted 'As You Like It' at the Guthrie Theater's Dowling Studio from January 12 ? February 3; The Acting Company last performed at The New Victory Theater in 2009 with a staging of Henry V directed by Davis McCallum. For this frolicsome, Jazz Age-styled Shakespearean saga, director Dan Rothenberg counts Maurice Sendak's seminal 1963 children's book, "Where the Wild Things Are," among his inspirations. "Rosalind and her boyfriend Orlando's flight of fancy into exile allows them to visit their wild side. They discover that the Forest of Arden is rendered by a child: messy, whimsical, full of animals personified and humans that are beastly," says Rothenberg. "In Shakespeare's "As You Like It," characters explore various forms of the stages of life ? the natural and the man-made, the selfish and the generous, the frightening and embracing ? reminding us that we are all simply mammals that require the greatest healing of all: love," he adds. Dan Rothenberg's recent New York presentations include Zero Cost House (Under the Radar 2013); Annihilation Point (Berserker Residents, Abrons Art Center 2011) and Enjoy (Play Company, 59E59 2010). As a founding member and co-artistic director of Philadelphia's Pig Iron Theatre Company, he directed the OBIE Award-winning Chekhov Lizardbrain (2007) and Hell Meets Henry Halfway (2004); in addition to many of the company's other productions, including Twelfth Night, or What You Will (2011); Cankerblossom (2010); and Sweet By-and-By (2008). Also joining from Pig Iron are Michael Kiley for Music and Sound Design, Sarah Sanford for Choreography and Matt Saunders for Scenic Design. The remaining creative team includes Michael Chybowski for Lighting Design, Felix Ivanoff for Fight Direction, Terese Wadden for Costume Design and Andrew Wade for Voice and Speech. Devin Brain serves as Staff Repertory Director, Gina Noele Odierno is the Production Stage Manager, and Brandon Curtis is the Assistant Stage Manager. The production features University of Minnesota/Guthrie Theater B.F.A. Actor Training Program graduates Megan Bartle (Celia), Buddy Haardt (Oliver), Kelsey Landon (Phoebe), Michael McDonald (Silvius/Le Beau), Noah Putterman (Amiens/William) and Elizabeth Stahlmann (Rosalind). The cast also includes A Guthrie Experience for Actors in Training alumnus Jasmine Bracey (Audrey). Returning with The Acting Company are Ray Chapman (Duke Frederick/Sir Archibald Martext), Joseph Midyett (Orlando) and Chris Thorn (Jacques). The cast is completed by Christopher Michael McFarland (Tourstone), Joseph Tisa (Adam/Corin) and Yaegel T. Welch (Duke Senior/Charles the Wrestler).
