From April 26 to 28, guests of the ATOM pavilion will be able to see unique theatrical performances, attend public talks with scientists and art classes. Also, a specially recorded audio tour-promenade will be available for everyone. Entrance to the Science Parterre Festival is free, some events require pre-registration. The detailed program is available on the pavilion's website.

The Science Parterre Festival will unite science, technology and art. For the first time in the ATOM pavilion, it will be possible to see science-drama - reading of plays related to scientific discoveries, inventions and new technologies, in the preparation of which both professional actors of the Eighth Platform Theater and scientists and science communicators participated.

Guests will be presented with an audiovisual production in three parts. Each performance has an independent plot, so it is possible to attend all three performances or choose any one of them. The production will tell about the importance of energy in general and the atom in particular. The spectators will be able to learn a lot of interesting things about the scientific achievements of the XX century and form their own opinion about them. The performances will be held in the conference hall of the pavilion on April 26, 27 and 28, beginning at 19:00.

A series of festival lectures and public talks will reveal the concept of "atom" through the lens of various spheres of life. Thus, biologist Timur Chernov will tell about atoms-"stickers", which help to find cancer cells in the body and even to establish the authenticity of works of art. Physicist Sergei Merts will talk on why particle accelerator is hidden under the Louvre and why ions are called the scalpel of the XXI century. Architectural historian Maria Nikitina will invite you to explore the problems of typical buildings and the identity of cities built near nuclear power plants.

At the art class the festival guests will be able to try themselves as research artists. The participants will discover the phenomenon of the "Black Square" and realize it as an initial element, a point of reference for the art of the XX century. The art class "To Square It Up" will take place on Saturday, April 27. It will start at 12:00. And on Sunday at the masterclass "EngiArt" it will be possible to study the principles used in the work of engineer Vladimir Shukhov and try them out when creating a collage. All materials for art - from primed canvases to neon garlands - are free of charge. It starts at 13:00. Pre-registration is required to attend.

On April 28 at 11:30, children from seven years old are welcome to attend the storytelling lecture "Alice in Wonderland: Atom Version." This classic story is beloved by mathematicians, philosophers, and even cyberneticians. At the Science Parterre Festival, the tale of Alice will allow audiences of all ages to understand what an atom is. A neural network will help to color and illustrate the Wonderland adventure. The lecture-tale and art classes will be held by Varvara Lyubova, creative director of the "Through the Eyes of an Engineer" company, art historian and artist.

An audio tour-promenade and a three-part musical composition were recorded specially for the festival. You can listen to them on the way to the ATOM pavilion or just on a walk around VDNH. Industrial noises and nervous pulsations symbolize the feeling of anxiety from the first human encounter with the atomic subject. But the physics of elementary particles fascinates and opens incredible perspectives, so the audio accompaniment changes - an ode to the "peaceful atom" sounds in the rhythm of an easy walk with the use of space and hi-tech sounds.

The hero of the audio tour is Vladimir Reshetov, Professor of MIPT and MEPhI, Doctor of Physical and Mathematical Sciences. Composers: Karen Kazakov and Tikhon Filatov. The audio promenade will be available to everyone via links posted on the ATOM website and in the pavilion's social networks.

The festival partner is the creative bureau "Through the Eyes of anEngineer".
