Humanity Needs Dreamers: A Visit with Marie Curie, Featuring Chopin Works Performed by Natalie Vargas Nedvetsky

Saturday April 10, 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm


A performance and narration of Chopin works by Natalie Vargas Nedvetsky (Juilliard ’20), Founder & Artistic Director, Literary Music Series, is the prelude to this one-person play about Marie Curie.

What if two-time Nobel-Prize-winner Marie Skłodowska Curie could tell her story? In 1921, the Polish scientist embarked on her first U.S. speaking tour with her two daughters Irene and Eve, organized by American journalist Missy Meloney.

The Princeton Center for Complex Materials invites you to help celebrate the 100th anniversary of Curie’s historic American visit with a digital theater presentation of HUMANITY NEEDS DREAMERS: A VISIT WITH MARIE CURIE including an interactive Q & A with Marie Curie as portrayed by engineer and scholar Susan Marie Frontczak.

The virtual event will be held Saturday, April 10, 2021 at 6:30pm – 8:30pm EST with Founder & Artistic Director of Literary Music Series Natalie Vargas Nedvetsky and a presentation by Nikita Dutta, a 5th year PhD in Mechanical Engineering at Princeton University on the significance of Marie Curie’s use of interdisciplinary research as applied to materials science today.
