Event Name:  Dancing in Zero G
Event Description:  Time: Oct 5 at 7 pm (EDT) Access to space and weightless environments is closer and more accessible everyday. What possibilities lay ahead in a future where humans can experience a new relationship to our bodies without gravity? Dance, beyond our wildest dreams. For the past few years, Adam Dipert has been developing tools and knowledge to make the jump into artistic weightlessness movement more comprehensible for himself and others. At the Google Fiber Cafe in Raleigh and in celebration of World Space Week, he will be offering a description of his work on the topic of human body movement in zero gravity. The talk will be roughly 30-45 min with video and demonstrations. He will discuss: 1) who has been doing weightless art and dance already 2) why is this interesting 3) a computer program he has written to help develop an intuitive understanding of the dynamics 4) his experience on the zero gravity flight 5) what should a person know to become a competent zero gravity movement artist Adam Dipert has been a professional circus performer for 16 years. During this time, he has also received a BS in Physics from The Ohio State University and is presently completing his PhD in Experimental Nuclear Physics in a lab on Duke University campus. The lecture is free to attend. Please feel free to send questions to Adam Dipert if you have them. Also, please let us know that you are coming, so we can be sure to have enough seating for all the future Stardancers and Stardance lovers.
