LA BOITE AND THE FARM PRESENT
THE MATHEMATICS OF LONGING
BY SUZIE MILLER
A life-affirming adventure of the sublime.
The Mathematics of Longing is a love story of whimsical delight and earnest gravity; a new work by internationally renowned Australian playwright Suzie Miller, with trailblazing Gold Coast based dance-theatre company, The Farm.

Physics and mathematical theorems intersect with the characters and stories they inspire in an explosion of art and science, exploring the infinite complexity of the human heart.
Bringing The Farm’s extraordinary physicality to the La Boite stage, The Mathematics of Longing is an algorithmic celebration of science and the poetics of modern relationships.
“We live in a massive multiverse with flexible time, compressible space, black holes and dark matter all about us; and yet juxtaposed against this is the ephemeral tenderness of human feeling. And finding the moment where human frailty and emotional connection coalesce is at least as wondrous as all the might of the physical world.” – Suzie Miller, Playwright
