About the Event: 

Invertigo Dance Theatre is excited to announce that the tickets are now available for the world premiere of its newest work Formulae & Fairy Tales September 13 and 14 at Santa Monica’s Eli and Edythe Broad Stage!

Formulae & Fairy Tales is a full-length work casting the life of Alan Turing, mathematical genius and World War II codebreaker, into the technicolor and mythologized ideas of his favorite film, Disney’s Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs. After the war, Turing was criminally prosecuted for being gay and forced into chemical castration. In 1954, he died by eating an apple laced with cyanide, an act eerily foreshadowed by Snow White.
