Description

A Pataphysical presentation with the unveiling of the Pataphysical Slot Machine Before Dada, there was Alfred Jarry. Jarry developed the science of Pataphysics. This has nothing to do with Dada. Yet, many a dadaist has sung the praises of Jarry's Ubu Plays. Is Dada a form of crypto-pataphysics? You decide. Doctor Canard, Professor Fabio, Dr. Figurine, Professor Really, Dr. Rindbrain and their colleagues will present an evening of exploration into the "science of imaginary solutions and the laws governing exceptions".

This event is part of the Dada World Fair. For more information, please visit http://www.dadaworldfair.net
