FOR SCIENCE!

Small Matters Productions—Asper Centre for Theatre and Film (U of W)

For Science was a unique and hilarious Fringe experiment! Two scientists get you involved in various tasks, some of them very recognizable. Nobody is forced to participate, but you’ll very likely want to! In some ways it’s similar to clown (its two characters are silent the entire show, assisted by some clear physicality and some production elements), but really, For Science! is its own sort of show entirely. A rare fringe gem!

Despite labelling the experiments as tests of the scientific method, it’s not. This is not a test group, placebo group, control group experiment; in fact, it’s not even science. You can loosely call it psychological observation it is definitely not “FOR SCIENCE.”

It is however, entertaining and amusing. The show starts quite slowly, somewhat overdoing the opening concepts, but soon, the fun gets rolling as the pieces slowly come together for the grand opus.

Participation is fun; you can choose to partake or leave it. I recommend partaking.

What would you get if Bill Nye the Science Guy and Beaker from the Muppets had two love children raised by the Blue Man Group? You’d get an absurd investigation of instant gratification and celebration of the scientific method, an audience participation show for people who hate audience participation, a show that sparks the utter joy of losing yourself to curiosity. You get The Professor and The Lab Assistant in… FOR SCIENCE! www.smallmatters.ca
