Event description:

Employing performance excerpts, audience interactions, and engaging visuals, choreographer and mathematician Karl Schaffer will demonstrate how the seemingly disparate disciplines of dance and math inspire each other. Shape and geometry, pattern and symmetry, counting and estimation, design and structure, coherence and logic, time and space, and, perhaps most importantly, a reverence for elegant solutions, provide a shared framework for a fascinating demonstration of how the creative process is the fundamental fuel that drives human achievement across disciplines. Special introduction by Presidential Award-winning educator Dave Masunaga.
