BUFFALO, N.Y. – For one night, song, dance and discourse will converge on a single topic: how the millions of microscopic friends who call the human body home affect our health, mood and love.
The event, Science After Hours: Tiny Worlds Inside, will use the performances, “Balancing Act” and “What We Leave Behind,” to merge science and art through choreographed sequences with yogurt, love songs about bacteria and installations that range from microbe ball pits to miniplots of grass and dirt.
The program is hosted by the Buffalo Museum of Science and is sponsored and supported by the University at Buffalo.
The evening will also feature guest speakers from UB, and the opportunity for visitors to peer into cellular depths at microscope stations and listen to inner gurgles with stethoscopes.
