The Symmetry Project
The Symmetry Project is a special project on the intersection of dance, opera, cinema, and science. The project consists of a feature film and a documentary.

In the prizewinning film Symmetry, CERN scientist Lukas is ardently in search of elementary particles and the theory of everything. Then the voice of a mysterious woman leads him to the moment before the Big Bang and lets him experience timeless love.

Symmetry Unravelled
Juliette Stevens followed the creative process of Symmetry and spoke with the artists and with famous scientists such as Robbert Dijkgraaf. She shows where art and science overlap: in making the invisible tangible, the elementary, where the concepts of time and space acquire a new meaning.
