Set in a castle in 1600 tells the story of astronomers Tyco Brahe and Johannes Kepler, played by Osmar Núñez and Lautaro Delgado Diemruk respectively, and the closeness that surrounds them as they work on the paths of orbits. . The play, co-produced by the Cultural Science Center of the Ministry of Science, Technology and Innovation and the Cervantes National Theater of the Ministry of Culture, is recommended for ages 16 and above.

The show tells the story of the German astronomer and mathematician Johannes Kepler (1571–1630), who was invited by Tyco Brahe, the Danish astronomer and imperial mathematician of Rudolf II, to collaborate on understanding the paths of orbits, particularly those of Mars. Very rebellious.
Tycho was known for the design and accuracy of instruments for measuring the positions of the stars and planets, which after his death passed into Kepler’s possession. The planets revolve around the sun in their orbits.
The play explores the tense relationship between scientists and, in an unexpected twist, takes another turn to enter the intimacy of truth-seeking actors like Kepler and Brahe, like the movement of Mars. Set in the 1600s or today, the opposite game activates memory, beliefs, and human relationships. Both need each other, both distrust each other, but without the other neither can reach Mars’ motion or discover who each is.
Villoro was inspired by Arthur Koestler’s book “The Sleepwalkers”, which begins with speculations about the origin of the universe and, in particular, takes a meeting of astronomers in the castle of Benedek, Bohemia. To understand the orbits of 1600 planets.
The first scene of the play
The premiere of the show was attended by Daniel Filmus, holder of the science portfolio, and Tristan Bauer of his culture.
Filmus revealed: “This space is the meeting point between science and culture. We look for works from theater that challenge the epic of science. If one goes deeper, there are many meeting points between theater and science. Creativity and intuition are needed. In addition to work, theater and science have techniques like essays.” In both it is called one, it is the testing of hypotheses” and “Drama and science have things in common like ethics, beauty of forms, and both have the same enemies, censorship, obscurity, authoritarianism and one supporter, the state. If the state does not put science and drama into the hands of all High quality”, and “Let us live with dignity to transmit cultural identity and scientific sovereignty. A theater begins today, and it will remain forever.
Bauer reviewed the collaboration with Filmus during his years as Minister of Education as Canal Encuentro, Technopolis and “Today theater connects science and culture. Thank you Daniel for many years of work” and thanked the artists and groups involved. and the presence of the Mothers of the Plaza de Mayo.
For his part, Guadalupe Díaz Costanzo, Director of Museums, Exhibitions and Exhibitions Development of the Ministry of Science, in charge of the guidance of the Science C3 Cultural Center, thanked Villoro, Lombardero, the actors and everyone. “Today C3 is a theatre. We hope to start a new path”.
