Reckless Sleepers: Schrodinger

Reckless Sleepers: Schrodinger


One of the foremost visual and devised theatre companies in the UK - this is a newly remade version of their critically-acclaimed show.

Internationally acclaimed Anglo-Belgian Performance Company Reckless Sleepers bring their touring production of Schrödinger to Lancaster.

In 1933 Erwin Schrödinger won the Nobel Prize for his contribution to Quantum Mechanics. He theorized a box in which a cat exists as living and dead at the same time. In 1998 Reckless Sleepers built that box – and now over a decade later, they are climbing back inside. In one of the company’s most celebrated performance pieces the impossible is probable, and truth and illusion are inseparable. Laws are made, bent and then broken.

Schrödinger is a visually mesmerizing performance that sways between question and answer, chaos and order, what we can measure and what we cannot.

Reckless Sleepers are running workshops for schools and colleges interested in finding out more about devising for theatre. The performance and workshop is accompanied by a publication specifically exploring the making of this important work: Trial - A study of the devising process in Reckless Sleepers’ ‘Schrodinger’s Box’.

The Thu 10 Nov performance is followed by a post-show discussion with the company.
