The Invisible Jazz Labs

Scientists are blended with improvisational artists for performance lectures.

The Invisible Jazz Labs blend scientists with improvisational artists from The Space Upstairs in an intimate lounge setting for unique performance lectures.  These informal experiments invite everyone to participate in the jazz of an idea unfolding as artists and scientists improvise together.  Speakers are ‘set free’ to expound on compelling topics while interacting with mixed-medium artists sharing the space where the ‘jazz of science’ and the ‘science in jazz’ can be found.

  • 9.22.17 LAB featuring Ardon Shorr
    with Pearlann Porter (host), John Lambert (poetry), Jordan Bush (chalk), PJ Roduta (percussion), Jackie Sobel (movement), Ella Mason (movement), Lauren Gerlowski (movement), Troy Patrick (movement), and Abby Gleason (camera)
    Blending physicists and improvisational artists from The Space Upstairs in this intimate lecture series where all share the jazz of the idea unfolding.

    "We can never predict the moment we make together, but as Science and the Arts spontaneously collaborate, the artists lend their physicality and visualizations to the scientific ideas and concepts expressed."

    “We are the evidence that persists when the quantum data vanishes… the proof that the jazz is implicit in all things. Our partnership is with what’s unknown.”
