World Science Festival Finds Times Square

World Science Festival Finds Times Square

Kelli Giddish, Mariska Hargitay

The tenth World Science Festival opened tuesday with a new work celebrating the human spirit of exploration, discovery, and creativity. Told by acclaimed physicist Brian Greene as a cosmic journey that wends its way from the Big Bang to the end of time. The evening featured an exceptional and eclectic group of performers including famed violinist Joshua Bell, renowned opera star Renée Fleming, the innovative dance troupe Pilobolus, singer David Draiman from the iconic hard rock band Disturbed, Broadway leading man Brian Stokes Mitchell, and string trio Time for Three, among others. The evening is a celebration of science and art examining our collective longing to transcend the boundaries of space and time.

 Sustainable Dance Floor

Sustainable Dance Floor

The World Science Festival brings science to the crossroads of the world, Times Square. From May 31 – June 3. The Festival brings to Times Square activities, demonstrations, and installations that educate, entertain, and inspire, providing the public a greater appreciation of our ever-changing planet — and our relationship to it. The programming includes a large LED video wall that powerfully illustrates how global warming is fundamentally changing the earth’s topography; climate talks; and the Sustainable Dance Floor, an innovative dance floor that generates power from human activity. The Sustainable Dance Floor will be open to the public from 7am – 11:59pm. Each day, from 10am – 6pm, guests will be invited to join in for a variety of energy generating games, fitness and dance classes and even a chance to charge their phones through their own movement.

 Holoscenes

The centerpiece of Science in the Square is Holoscenes, an epic performance-installation that viscerally connects everyday actions to climate change. Born of the widely-shared concern that water — from rising seas, intensifying floods, and extended droughts — will be a defining issue of the 21st century, Holoscenes takes place in a twelve ton glass aquarium which, over the course of five hours each day, periodically floods and drains, requiring a rotating cast of performers to creatively respond to changing levels of water. Holoscenes will be performed from 6pm to 11pm, June 1 – 3. The Holoscenes exhibit is to illustrate the effects of climate change, most notably the real consequences of drought and flooding, said Times Square Arts director Debra Simon.

The installation is the focal part of Science in the Square, a collection of exhibitions and demonstrations in the middle of Times Square. The public event, which spans Thursday through Saturday, coincides with the multi-day World Science Festival.
