Event: Émilie – Sept 2023

Take your seats and enter the world of 18th-century France where you’ll meet a remarkable scientist and her great love, Voltaire. 
 
Ten years after her death, Émilie du Châtelet’s translation of Newton’s Principia from Latin into French was published. While it is still the main translation used today, Émilie is either forgotten or recognised as ‘the mistress’ of Voltaire, one of France’s most revered philosophers and writers. 
 
Writer, music composer and director, Sophie Lindsay shares, “Émilie’s story is universal in its specificity. Throughout history, extraordinary women have been overshadowed by men, and not only in science. I hope ÉMILIE will delight and inspire audiences, and prompt us to reflect on whether our attitudes have changed today.”
 
Don’t miss this new and exciting high-energy, comedy-drama performed by some of Aotearoa’s best acting talent, with an original soundtrack performed live on violin and cello.
