The Energy Show

Thu 6 Mar 2014

Methane bubbles are set alight to make fireballs, liquid nitrogen freezes flowers, hydrogen balloons explode and rockets are fired into the audience. Stand well back and cover your ears – theatre just got dangerously exciting! Produced by the world famous Science Museum in London, The Energy Show follows two futuristic science students as they race against time to prove their knowledge of energy. With help from the incredible virtual lab-assistant, i-nstein, and a steampunk workshop full of gadgets and chemicals, they explore, experiment and explode anything and everything they can find, building to a breath-taking climax as they demonstrate all forms of energy, live on stage, in under five minutes.
