UK’s Ministry of Science team returns to Abu Dhabi

ABU DHABI, 12th March, 2017 (WAM) -- The Abu Dhabi Festival has welcomed the UK’s Ministry of Science to Abu Dhabi for the third year, with the company’s latest show, ‘The World is One Classroom’ which featured two performances at the Abu Dhabi Theatre.

In ‘The World is One Classroom’, the Ministry of Science explored scientific phenomena. Filled with historical references woven into the narrative, as well as plenty of bangs and demonstrations ranging from exploding volcanoes to fire tornados and G-Force CO2 Spinning Chairs, the performances took viewers on a journey inside the fascinating world of science, exploring the wonders of energy and engineering.

Presented in association with Mubadala and in partnership with Art for All, the production is the latest initiative by the Abu Dhabi Music and Arts Foundation, ADMAF, that explores the crossroads of arts and science.

Speaking on the occasion, Saoud Karmastaji, Assistant Manager, Group Communications, Mubadala, said, "Through our community outreach programmes and partnerships, we aim to inspire young UAE nationals to realise opportunities in various fields. We are committed to encouraging young generations to explore and pursue an exciting future that supports the long-term development of Abu Dhabi, whether it is in the arts or science."
