Is there a mathematical equation for love and the behaviour of a beating heart? When our windshield is blurred with rain and we’re wearing our reading glasses, can we learn to look in the rear-view mirror and smile?

Doctor Zeeman’s Catastrophe Machine is the new stage production from award-winning poet Martin Figura. He turns to international mathematics guru Sir Erik Christopher Zeeman’s iconic machine, the moon and photographs, to help him sort out love, loss and when to let go.

With projections, machinery and sound by Andre Barreau, Karen Hall and Paul Finlay.  Produced by Tilt and funded by Arts Council England, with support from Norwich Arts Centre and Writers’ Centre Norwich.
