Secrets of Gravity

Why do things fall to the ground without magic?

The young magician’s apprentice LIMBRADUR is far more interested in the universe and its secrets than magic spells. He is fascinated by the stars, the universe and the laws of nature. So, one night he sneaks into the Albert Einstein Museum, where he meets ALBYX3, a small, clever but rather quirky robot who knows all about Albert Einstein and his theories. ALBY takes LIMBRADUR on a magical journey of discovery through time and space, during which they not only uncover the secrets of gravity but also learn much about friendship and imagination. For LIMBRADUR and ALBY both have secrets of their own.

Albert Einstein is a superstar of science, one of the most famous researchers of our time. 2015 marked the 100th anniversary of the publication of his “General Theory of Relativity”, which is as relevant today as it was when it was first released.

Gravity is the key aspect of this theory, the fundamental physical force which affects our entire lives. If it were not for gravity as it is known on the earth, the universe would not exist and nor would we.

Telling an exciting story, ALBY explains the main principles of this mysterious force to the inquisitive and adventurous LIMBRADUR, thus instilling in him an understanding of the fascinating insights of Albert Einstein.

This show is an ideal choice for mixed-age groups.
