Science as Performance is designed to communicate science to the general public. We present the concept of a Center on Science and the Arts consisting of public performances, program dissemination, and outreach to schools, professional societies and laboratories. We put forward a strategy for exporting productions to other venues, spreading public engagement in science issues. As an example of international outreach, two of the authors (BS+LM) are producing a musical play, based on the acclaimed novel Einstein’s Dreams by Alan Lightman, which will have its European premiere in Lisbon next year.

We present the concept of a Center on Science and the Arts consisting of public performances, program dissemination, and outreach to schools, professional societies and laboratories. We put forward a strategy for exporting productions to other venues, spreading public engagement in science issues.
