Meet Kate: a physicist in the male-dominated labs of the 1980s. Addicted to the pounding beats and neon glow of her generation, follow Kate as she discovers her potential as a cutting edge scientist.
As a girl, Kate dreamt of being among the elite, but as expectations become reality and the professional turns personal her world is in a spin.
Inspired by the real life work of female physicists, Flux uses extraordinary life-size puppetry, an electrifying set of shadow and light, and a filmic score to follow Kate as she discovers what it means to be a woman in a world of men.
From Smoking Apples, creators of the hugely acclaimed CELL and In Our Hands. Flux has been developed with Shoreditch Town Hall, Oxford Playhouse, Arts at the Old Fire Station, Cornerstone Arts, Brewery Arts Centre and the Institute of Physics.
