Nobel Prize disco

This is a past event from Manchester Science Festival 2016. 

No festival is complete without a disco, so in honour of Andre Geim and Konstantin Novoselov’s Nobel Prize-winning isolation of graphene, we present the Nobel Prize disco.

Throw some shapes in the Museum of Science and Industry’s Revolution Manchester gallery with a sound system, light show, visuals and bar.  See two of Manchester’s finest drag performers, Lill Queen and Grace Oni Smith deliver amazing performances with a radical new twist on the fascinating world of Nobel Prize winners. And don’t miss an original pop-up dance performance from two of Manchester’s fiercest young contemporary dancers, Sista Hood from the House of Ghetto…!

Science meets disco meets performance, with drinks and dressing up for good measure. Come dressed as your favourite Nobel Prize winner – or winning discovery. Einstein moustaches at the ready…

Music from Greg Thorpe (Drunk At Vogue, Off The Hook).
