Time Travels in Physics and Dance: An Open Reading with Emily Coates and Sarah Demers


Jul 9, 2019
06:00 PM until 07:00 PM


Join us for a FREE open reading of Emily Coates’ and Sarah Demers’ exciting new book, Physics and Dance (Yale University Press 2018) at the Tang Museum on July 9 at 6 p.m.

From stepping out of our beds each morning to admiring the stars at night, we live in a world of motion, energy, space, and time. How do we understand the phenomena that shape our experience? How do we make sense of our physical realities? Two guides—a former member of New York City Ballet, Emily Coates, and CERN particle physicist, Sarah Demers—show us how their respective disciplines can help us to understand both the quotidian and the deepest questions about the universe.

Requiring no previous knowledge of dance or physics, this introduction covers the fundamentals while revealing how a dialogue between art and science can enrich our appreciation of both.

Emily Coates is a dancer, choreographer, writer, and associate professor in the theater studies program at Yale University, where she created and directs the Dance Studies curriculum. Sarah Demers is Horace D. Taft Associate Professor of Physics at Yale University, where she is ATLAS Upgrade Physics convener and works on the Mu2e trigger. Their work has been featured in the World Science Festival and covered in the New York Times and the New Yorker.

This event is free, but reservations are required.
