8:30 p.m. at the Globe of Science and Innovation.

This production takes a comic look at scientific methods, as applied to a common object: the pancake. More specifically, Dr H. regales his audience with statistics, experiments and scientific data surrounding this egg-and-milk-based culinary delight. And although these zany sketches are nothing short of absurd, the audience is drawn in more often than you might expect… and taken on quite an unexpected journey into the behavioural disorders, personality quirks and psychoanalysis of the base pancake.

This show playfully mocks scientific logic and discourse, forcing the audience to reflect on their gullibility in the face of science and its impenetrable jargon. It purports to be neither explanation nor illustration of scientific fact, seeking rather to examine scientific culture by turning a critical eye on how science is portrayed in literature and the media - the mere act of presenting a set of photos, graphs or quotes doesn't prove that something is true.

Heiko Buchholz, author, actor and director, was born in Germany in 1969.
