Scientists show off their research in the theatre

The interdisciplinary research project Governing Obesity has been on tour among upper secondary schools to perform an alternative kind of research communication – a science theatre.

In the show, which is called ‘Live life in style’ (Lev livet med stil), researchers and actors perform side by side, and the head of the Governing Obesity project, professor Bente Stallknecht, hopes that the combination of brief lectures and theatre will make the young audiences curious about the research in the project and about studying and working at a university.

Governing Obesity is one of 18 research initiatives established in 2013 as part of the University of Copenhagen Excellence Programme for Interdisciplinary Research, for more information about GO visit

The Science Theater (Videnskabsteatret) is headed by Dorthe Bille who has more than 10 years experience working with science, communication and theater. For more information visit
