The 2019 National Math Festival is proud to present the Math/Creativity Video Series. A collection of short form, behind the scenes clips produced by this year's Festival presenters, Math/Creativity aims to inspire and spark mathematical joy while celebrating the unity of math and the arts.
Dance of the Diagram, choreographed by Kyla Barkin and Aaron Selissen, will delight all viewers, regardless of their previous mathematical credentials! The piece, commissioned by celebrated mathematician Dr. James Simons, was inspired by a beautiful piece of mathematics coming from geometry. As it goes in mathematics, so it goes on the dance floor, as dancers traverse specific sequences and patterns on a hexagonal diagram. Along their journeys, they encounter intimacy, wild rebellion, and the inevitability of being canceled out upon arrival. Only a select few “un-swallowed” may tiptoe back to the mysterious center and continue another cycle of absorbing and imparting information. It takes a well-oiled machine to function under the rules of this diagram during the day; however, there is no accounting for what happens at night!
Join us on May 4th in Washington, D.C. to experience the 2019 National Math Festival!
