Marie Curie: Radium Songs Music,
Performing Arts- Storytelling,
Science
Folk-noir musical duo Charming Disaster presents a cycle of original songs inspired by the life of the scientist Marie Curie, her research and discoveries, and their repercussions – from the struggles she faced as a female scientist, to the relationship of equals she shared with her fellow-scientist husband Pierre, to her discovery of radium and the principles of radiation, to the “radium girls” who were poisoned by their work painting watch dials with luminous paint. These songs touch on themes from Curie’s biography, the physics of radiation, and the consequences of nuclear physics in the world. Charming Disaster frames each song with contextual information in a storytelling format, with room for audience interaction and questions. Instrumentation is guitar and ukulele with male/female duet vocals.
