The culminating performance of the “Dance Your SMP” workshop led by John Bohannon.
Free and open to the public.
John Bohannon is a biologist and journalist and is the guest lecturer on Monday, April 4 for the final Natural Science & Mathematics Colloquium. Using an alter ego known as the Gonzo Scientist, Bohannon runs the “Dance Your PhD” contest. It’s an international competition for scientists to explain their research with interpretive dance. In his TED Talk, “A Modest Proposal,” he suggests that Powerpoint presentations be replaced by live dancers and that science be communicated instead through movement.
