Algebraic variety night
This week we have an unusual post – a video of a blackboard! This is part of a Swiss theatre production, and a translation of the blurb on their website is as follows: “In their new production, the Matterhorn company deals with mathematics. Both the content and the structure are motivated by mathematical questions. They use the Euler characteristic as an all-singing and all-dancing guiding principle in their search for mathematics. “The many folds” is a unique attempt to develop a theatrical production based on mathematical principles, and to use the stage to extend and re-interpret mathematics.”
Please let us know if you’ve seen the production!
