Performance preview: The Energy Show, Science Museum, London, July 22 – August 31 2013
A pair of steampunk science students called Annabella and Phil will be entertaining curious young minds at the Science Museum this summer with an explosive family show.
Consumed with flaming methane bubbles, exploding liquid nitrogen, Plasma Ball lights, hydrogen rockets and a Van de Graaff generator, the futuristic duo promise to unleash an extraordinary array of chemicals and gadgets as they race against time to prove their knowledge of energy.
Martin Lamb, a co-conspirator of English National Opera and the V&A, says his new work – gallivanting across a new mechanical stage within the museum’s IMAX theatre – combines a traditional live science show with the storytelling of family theatre.
Helped by a team with Tony Award nominations to their name, the show, which adressess aspects of the science curriculum at Key Stages 2 and 3, is aimed at children aged seven and above.
- Starts 11.30am and 1.30pm Tuesday-Sunday. Admission £14.40/£9.50 (family ticket £29-£42). Book online.
