What happens when a TED talk about chaos theory goes wildly off the rails? Chaos Theory is a comedic, immersive experience exploring the underlying chaos in our lives. A lecture about chaos theory devolves into a series of interactive games inspired by the science of chaos theory, Jurassic Park, middle school crushes, and abstract math seminars builds to “utter beautiful chaos” as the audience is guided by mathematical scientist, Dr. Genevieve Saoch, whose personal life continually interferes with her ability to be objective about her research as a Chaologist. Through a series of participatory experiments, audience members are invited to embrace their inner chaos agent as they embody facets of chaos theory including deterministic chaos, fractals, self-organization, and the butterfly effect.   Doors 9:00 PM, show 9:30 PM.Tickets $25 in advance, $30 at the door.21+This event is mixed seated and standing room.
