Join two Artistic Directors from productions in this year's festival, Mrs Santha Bhaskar (Choreographer of 28) and Edith Podesta (Director of A Disappearing Number) in a dialogue that takes a closer look at the beauty of mathematical patterns and forms in art, nature and performance. Together with Assistant Professor Miguel Escobar Varela, a theatre researcher who applies computational methods to study theatre performances, discover new ways to look at Javanese dance and puppetry through network diagrams, maps and motion capture animations.

About Critical Conversations
As part of the Centre For the Arts' vision to nurture creative minds and inquiring spirits, the NUS Arts Festival presents Critical Conversations - a series of talks and panel discussions aimed at deepening the discourse and engagement with the themes raised during the festival. In particular this year, the programme seeks to present parallels between the arts and mathematics in their shared longing to express answers to humanity's deepest unsolved questions.
