Stellarium is a partnership project with Science & Engineering Education Research and Innovation Hub (SEERIH) at University of Manchester.
Stellarium is Dance Manchester & The University of Manchester’s new youth dance performance project bringing the arts and science together through dance. The choreography is based on the knowledge of leading astrophysicists, Dr Rowan Smith & Dr Helen Mason on the subject of how stars are formed and ‘our star’, the Sun. This has then been interpreted into movement by Greater Manchester based choreographer, Bridget Fiske.
In the year that Manchester is the European City of Science, participants from Derby High School, Falinge Park High School and Wright Robinson College will perform ‘Stellarium’ at Manchester Day, Great Science Share, and Signatures Youth Dance trail 2016 – as part of UDance at the Lowry.
