L_ENTES, nominated to DansaCat 2012 Awards

The Dansacat 2012 Awards (Premis Dansacat), are organized by the Association of Dance Professionals of Catalonia (APdC). Their goal is to give recognition and promote the work of  dance professionals in Catalonia.

La Mandarina de Newton provided scientific advice during the conceptualization and development of the piece L_ENTES by coreographers Iris Heitzinger and Natalia Jiménez. We are happy to know that it has been shortlisted and nominated for the third edition of the Dansacat Awards, in the “New Talents” category. It was selected because of the quality of the performance and for being a multidisciplinary creation. Also because it included science in the project as well as the fact that it used non-conventional spaces for performance.

Winners will be chosen by popular vote, that can be case at the association’s website, www.dansacat.org. The voting process started on November 28th and will end on December 16th.  Prizes will be awarded on December 20th, in the opening of the piece ‘Little me” by Lali Ayguadé.

Science of the City, opening its own website!

The “Science of the City” project continues encouraging citizens around the world to look for science that lurks in the corners of their cities and putting it on a 2 minutes video. This was published at El Tercer Milenio from the Heraldo de Aragón newspaper.

More and more institutions, museums and universities are adding efforts to contribute to the promotion of this project. Currently, we have the support of The Tech Museum that sponsors seven awards, Arts Santa Mònica, Trànsit Projectes, the Observatori de la Comunicació Científica de la Universitat Pompeu Fabra, the Museu de Ciències Naturals de Barcelona, Singapore Science Center, Liberty Science Center, Biobus, NY Hall of Science, The NY Academy of Sciences and Paris-Montagne. Wiser-U will also sponsor the best French video award. So for now, you can participate in English, Spanish and French.

In addition, we have announced the project site. You can find it at Scienceofthecity.net. We hope you like it and  we encourage you to use your holidays to make a science video in your city or in your holiday destination city!

We are also in Facebook!
