CNC has been exploring artistic language as a way to communicate and stablish connections with society, sparking emotions and raising awareness for Science.
Several theatre plays were staged in close collaboration with CNC researchers, either as actors, authors or source of inspiration.
In 2010, CNC joined the national programme “Artists in Residence – Art, Science and Technology” promoted by Agência Ciência Viva and Direcção Geral das Artes. CNC housed the Marionet theatre company during a seven-month period that culminated in their project “% = X [divide equals multiply]”. This residence led to the creation of the play “MIM – My Inner Mind”, that was launched at CNC in November 2012.
