Touched that a Friday night dinner at our place played a small part on its journey.
Really enjoying @thesailorsgirl brilliant new book.
So excited. Moominvalley is coming to my local wetlands in Walthamstow. I was slow to reading as a kid but it was the strange world of the Moomins that drew me in to the power of a book. My childhood was spent immersed in that valley and beyond. …ewomanwhofellinlovewithanisland.co.uk
Wonderful to be at opening night of The Language of Kindness @ShoreditchTH An amazing show about nurses in the NHS. Go see it! @waywardprods
3+D = ⁦@ANTSTheatre⁩ show where group theory determines the rules of how the characters interact. Here’s a picture from yesterday’s show where I got to play M (a real zero of a character) instagram.com/p/CPobmmznqrq/…
If I had to choose one insect to join me on a desert island it would be these cicadas. But why do they have prime number life cycles? 17 or 13? What does it have to do with Messiaen’s Quartet for the End of Time? Find out in my book The Number Mysteries. theguardian.com/environment/20…
Had a fun week rehearsing @Centre151 with @ANTSTheatre and their tetrahedron in preparation for their show @theatredeli next week (learning my lines this weekend as one of the ants has temporarily flown the nest and I'm the unofficial ant-erstudy) twitter.com/ANTSTheatre/st…
In theatre the prompt book contains the set of instructions used by the company to physically construct the play from its elements. The script of I is a Strange Loop includes a specially written Mathematical Prompt Book. Available @FaberBooks faber.co.uk/books/drama/97…
It’s that thrilling moment when the physical copy finally arrives in the post. It’s no longer an abstract idea but a physical thing. Captures the journey of the play. But which is more real? I is a Strange Loop. Available @FaberBooks
“It’s got everything! Love! Death! ... Mathematics!” If you missed the broadcast of I is a Strange Loop yesterday never fear. The performance and post-show discussion @SimonMcBurney are available @OxUniMaths YouTube. Script available @FaberBooks youtu.be/xEORIj1Ecug
Do join us at 5pm UK time on the @OxUniMaths YouTube channel for the first broadcast performance of our play I is a Strange Loop followed by a discussion with @SimonMcBurney Script published @FaberBooks youtube.com/watch?v=xEORIj…
Join us tomorrow for our screening of I is a Strange Loop followed by a conversation with @SimonMcBurney @Complicite Script is available @FaberBooks twitter.com/OxUniMaths/sta…
A strange loop: structure that goes through layers of a hierarchical system to find itself back at the beginning. The strange loop of our play involves a journey from mathematics to theatre to reality back to mathematics via a Möbius strip. @FaberBooks faber.co.uk/books/drama/97…
One key inspiration for I is a Strange Loop was Borges’s story The Library of Babel. I loved the idea that the stage is a model of the library/universe. The stage is all there is. Or is there something more? What happens if you exit SL? @FaberBooks faber.co.uk/books/drama/97…
“Very Beckettian” Best compliment we got about our play I is a Strange Loop. Beckett’s notebooks are full of mathematical patterns as a basis for performance. My secret name for our play is “Waiting for Godel” (Our play is published this week @FaberBooks )
A new profile picture to celebrate the publication of our play I is a Strange Loop @FaberBooks
I went to the theatre last night! It was amazing. Not just the novelty of live performance again but a fantastic opening night for The Language of Kindness. So proud to be a trustee @waywardprods
So excited to be helping out on this new play @ANTSTheatre exploring more maths and theatre and group theory. There's even a chance I might get to be an ant understudy! twitter.com/ANTSTheatre/st…
It's publication day for our play "I is a Strange Loop" Such an honour to be published @FaberBooks alongside the like of Beckett, Stoppard and Eliot. faber.co.uk/books/drama.ht…
"I is a Strange Loop" is an example of theatre ending with a script not beginning with one. Every performance led to new discoveries. It began its journey at Secret Garden Party in 2011. The final script is based on our performance @BarbicanCentre in 2019 faber.co.uk/9780571360734-…
I is a Strange Loop is being published on Thursday but it is ready for pre-order @FaberBooks Includes instructions for making your theatre into a 4D torus! faber.co.uk/books/drama/97…
Our play I is a Strange Loop is being published @FaberBooks this week. To launch its publication @UniofOxford are broadcasting a film we made of our performance @OxfordPlayhouse followed by a conversation with @SimonMcBurney @Complicite twitter.com/OxUniMaths/sta…
Had a lot of fun reading about Rameau's ideas about maths and music for the concert I curated @OxfordPhil I was particularly intrigued how his ideas of dissonance and consonance sound like the description of Newton's cradle. Find out more here youtube.com/watch?v=cuDBrK…
How wonderful to hear the Vivaldi double cello concerto @BBCRadio3 A lovely reminder of the conversation I had with @drsarahwalker Battling this week with Sitkovetsky’s arrangements of Goldberg with my string trio outside in the cold 🥶1
Language of Kindness @waywardprods has been on an amazing journey. So excited finally to see it on stage at the end of the month. twitter.com/waywardprods/s…
“Only got eyes for you” (seen on my morning run)
Really excited to announce that our play I is a Strange Loop will be published by @FaberBooks on 20 May amazon.co.uk/gp/aw/d/057136…
If you missed my conversation last week @5x15stories with @carlorovelli about his new book Helgoland then you can catch up on YouTube youtube.com/watch?v=uCZ3ab…
My concert with @OxfordPhil exploring maths and music, the baroque and beyond is available on YouTube. It includes a sublime piece of Rameau, some stellar performances in the Bach Double Violin followed by the Everest of trumpet pieces: Brandenburg 2.youtube.com/watch?v=cuDBrK…
Mathematician @MarcusduSautoy Sautoy, @UniofOxford professor for the public understanding of #science, attempts to get to the bottom of what makes #Stradivari so special, via climate change and Chladni plates... @OxfordPhil bit.ly/3nbv4gA

So much fun exploring the relational interpretation of quantum mechanics with @carlorovelli at last night @5x15stories Helgoland is a wonderful guide to the most extraordinary story in physics. It will reset your view of the universe youtube.com/watch?v=uCZ3ab…
What on earth has Baroque music got to do with a Newton's Cradle?! Find out in our free Sunday evening concert, when @MarcusduSautoy presents Music & Maths: Baroque & Beyond 🎻 oxfordphil.com/events/1282537…p #HereForCulturee@ace_nationall9

One of the advantages of this zoom existence is the chance to drop in to talk to this science festival in Chile. Hoping to visit physically next time. twitter.com/puertodeideas/…
I’ll be talking maths music and the baroque on Sunday with @OxfordPhil when we release the film of the concert I curated and presented oxfordphil.com/events/1282537…
In Rome for an exciting new filming project. Couldn’t resist dropping into some of my favourite baroque churches including Sant Ignazio with its false dome. Only one place in the church where the illusion works.
We were so hoping to have an audience for this concert @OxfordPhil but it wasn't to be. But I hope by sharing the concert online we can reach those who might not have made it to Oxford. Enjoy. We did! twitter.com/OxfordPhil/sta…

Filmed just before we plunged into the last lockdown, I talk about my book The Creativity Code @TheEconomist for their great series of films Now&Next youtube.com/watch?v=cgYpMY…
Really enjoyed talking SuperCreativity and AI with @JamesTaylor_me twitter.com/JamesTaylor_me…
Such fun collaborating with the amazing @ANTSTheatre We had a blast at home with their amazingly inventive show We Still Fax. Really exciting seeing the new show emerging ready for @BradfordFringe Hope a sprinkling of symmetry helps! twitter.com/ANTSTheatre/st…
At the end of the eighteenth century it looked like Jupiter was heading into the sun and Saturn was on its way out of the solar system. Find out in In Our Time this week how Pierre-Simon Laplace saved the solar system bbc.co.uk/programmes/m00…
Join me over @JoinClubhouse at 18:00 UK time in the Art Talk room for a chat about Art-ificial Intelligence... joinclubhouse.com/event/xoE6lqnE
Coming up on April 19th the incredible @carlorovelli and @MarcusduSautoy together at 5x15 will help us make sense of the quantum as they discuss Helgoland. Don't miss it - mailchi.mp/5x15stories.co…

The Koreans always have such elegant covers. The Creativity Code has its origins in a story set in Korea: the battle between AlphaGo and Lee Sedol. Move 37, Game 2 = The first inkling of AI creativity.
Are there any similarities between working in a theatre and working in an operating theatre? Find out @waywardprods conversations. twitter.com/waywardprods/s…
We finished our concert last night with the Everest of the trumpet repertoire: Brandenburg 2. I’ve scaled this peak once in my life in an evening soirée in Oxford. Great to hear it played so brilliantly last night @OxfordPhil
Bach double violin concerto with two extraordinary soloists and two Stradivarius violins. In the concert I’ll explain some possible theories for why these violins are so special. @OxfordPhil
Such a privilege to be listening to our rehearsal for tonight’s recorded concert exploring maths and the baroque with @OxfordPhil No audience tonight alas but it will be released in April online.
Looking forward to listening to @SimonMcBurney on Arts Hour. Working with him on A Disappearing Number and The Encounter was a joy! What's next? bbc.co.uk/programmes/w3c…
