For two evenings only, do not miss the unique opportunity to attend a performance of the critically acclaimed play, Constellations, accompanied by an onstage conversation between playwright Nick Payne and World Science Festival co-founder and physicist Brian Greene.
Lovers often say fate brought them together, and fate doesn’t get much credit after that. But in Constellations, every moment Roland and Marianne share is at the mercy of the infinite and unknowable universe. A beekeeper and a quantum physicist – the odds of them getting together are astronomical. But when their worlds collide, they keep on colliding, and colliding, leading to a romantic journey that was inspired by one of the most profound theories of physics: the idea that we live in a bundle of universes where all possibilities exist.
Following the performance, Nick Payne and Professor Greene will delve into our current understanding of the multiverse, what mysteries remain, and why this theory captivated Payne’s imagination inspiring this theatrical tour de force.
After sold-out seasons in New York and London – now it’s Queensland’s turn to be delighted and moved by this quirky and charming romance.
This exclusive event is a result of a collaboration between World Science Festival Brisbane and Queensland Theatre.
