Performance Dates

In 1941, German physicist Werner Heisenberg visited his Danish colleague and mentor, Niels Bohr, in Copenhagen. The uncertainty over what really happened at this meeting, uncomfortable and dangerous in the midst of World War II, compels the two men, along with Bohr's wife Margrethe, to revisit their confused versions of the event. Even in the afterlife, they are driven to understand the implications of atomic theory in wartime and the explosive chain reactions of human relationships.
