A rare performance of Paul Miller’s (aka DJ Spooky) lush multimedia presentation inspired by astronomy, engineering, biology, and psychology. Miller composed the music for The Hidden Code based on conversations with several of Dartmouth’s finest physicists, astronomers, engineers, biologists, brain scientists and computer scientists – including theoretical physicist and saxophone player Stephon Alexander, who is featured in this performance. The Hidden Code rests between a meditation on how artists and scientists convert ideas into action, and how composers translate the intangibility of music into a group of observations.
Produced in Partnership with Benaroya Hall and Sozo Artists, Inc.
10 pm: Dayna Hanson with Jim Fletcher: 28 problems
BASE in Georgetown: 6520 5th Ave S #112, Seattle, WA 98108

The premiere of choreographer Dayna Hanson’s 28 problems, performed in collaboration with beloved New York-based experimental theater actor Jim Fletcher; also featuring Madison Haines and Julia Sloane.
28 problems transcodes the language of mathematics into the language of dance. Inspired by a set of calculus problems found on a discarded piece of scratch paper, Hanson created a vocabulary of dance “symbols” and movement phrases that corresponded as closely as possible to the equations. 28 problems expresses Hanson’s interest in divides between people (those who understand math and those who don’t; those whose religious beliefs and cultures differ) and also in gestures aimed at narrowing those divides.
