Science, art, theatre and big complex problems collide when Boho appear. They help to bring science education and understanding to the wider community.
In this talk at TEDxCanberra 2011, science theater group Boho demonstrate in “18 one-minute talks” that Complexity Theory really can be understood by the average person. Not only that, they bring to the fore a number of global issues and discuss them in the context of complex systems interaction.
You have to see it to believe it!
Boho present interactive science-theatre, integrating concepts from Complex Systems disciplines with narrative performance technique to connect emotional and cognitive understandings of the world.
By making concepts from the sciences concrete through structures of systems thinking, they highlight the real-life consequences of seemingly abstract and disparate principles. Telling stories about the individuals and communities affected by social phenomena, Boho force audiences to emotionally appreciate the impact of their instinctive decision-making heuristics.
Boho entertain using character-based performance, lo- and hi-fi media art and live trombone to be interesting. A range of techniques fill their performances, includinge experimentation, failure, re-evaluation and prediction to make it real.
