April 23, 2019_LEHMER’S DANCE @ Nederlands Mathematisch Congres

Slide 1 – 5-choose-1+2+2-animation-v2

Mathematician Verhoeff and choreographer Van Berkel present a lecture performance on the ‘spurs’ of Lehmer. In mathematic visualisations these ‘spurs’ appear on paths in permutation graphs. For this lecture performance the permutation graphs and the spurs are translated into movement, image and sound. The characteristics ‘proximity’ and ‘minimal change’ form the basic ingredients for an exact and playful combination of science and art.

By Tom Verhoeff (mathematician) and Roos van Berkel (choreographer) in collaboration with Marion Tränkle (scenographer), Ivo Bol (composer) and dancers of the department Modern Theatre Dance
