The music and theatre company Encerrado para Obras, from Penela (Coimbra, Portugal), which i represent, will be doing a show called Quimicómico, in which chemistry props and scenes based on chemistry demos will be included. The premiere will be in march 27. Then the show will be done for schools in Exploratorio - Centro Ciência Viva de Coimbra.

We are now beginning the creation of the show. We will be giving news about the progress of things, and we´ll put some links when we have something on film. Any ideas will be welcome.

The show will also be available to go to science fairs and other meetings beginning in april 2011.

Anybody who´s interested in receiving this show can contact us by this email:

So that people can meet a bit of our work here´s alink for our previous production, called Fábrica de Sons (it means the sound factory) which is a show about sounds as you can guess and which was also done in cooperation with Exploratorio de Coimbra:
