Martin Figura returns to StAnza Festival with his show Dr Zeeman’s Catastrophe Machine.

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.

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

Event produced by Tilt and funded by Arts Council England, with support from Norwich Arts Centre and Writers’ Centre Norwich.
