art & science: where the future is imagined
There are two things that are true about living in this time and region: We are among the brightest scientific minds in the world and the distance between science and the essential questions of our humanity grows shorter every day.
What people say about
Central Square Theater's
Catalyst Collaborative@MIT Program
As a long time fan of CST productions, I am particularly enthusiastic about the plays presented in partnership with CC@MIT. Theater of this kind provides a powerful vehicle for civic engagement by helping us to consider the socioeconomic, political, and emotional impacts of science and technology on our lives.
The Catalyst Collaborative at MIT, through the magical medium of the living stage, brings people into the world of science -- not the textbook drone of electrons and genes -- but the big ideas, the imagination, the passion, the jealousies, the idealism, the universe in a grain of sand.
Attending a CC@MIT production is engaging, entertaining, and intellectually stimulating. These productions help all audiences to appreciate, sometimes for the first time, the humanity of those who do science, their contradictions and limitations, as well their genius and creativity. At a CC@MIT production we laugh, we cry, and we think (!) … we simply love it.
