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.

His previous show ‘Whistle’ toured extensively, won the Saboteur Award for Best Spoken Word Show, and was shortlisted for the Ted Hughes Award.

With projections, machinery and sound by Andre Barreau, Karen Hall and Paul Finlay.  Produced by Tilt in association with Poetry Can.

The show is funded by Arts Council England, with support from Norwich Arts Centre and Writers’ Centre Norwich.

Age guidance: 14+. Show running time: 1 hour approx.

The event offers the show, plus performances by Helen Ivory and Lucy English.
