Nobel Laureates in Physics Hiroshi Amano and Shuji Nakamura, visited Kista and NOD Building on 9 December to find out more about the activities that are carried out there. The new building houses the Department of Computer and Systems Sciences.

During the visit they met with Ericsson President and CEO Hans Vestberg and CTO Ulf Ewaldsson at the Ericsson Studio.

Mobile theatre in the Metro

The Nobel Laureates took the Metro back to the city; and during the trip, they experienced an interactive movie and theatre show, inspired by the Greek drama Antigone, set in a contemporary Swedish context.

It is a multimodal performance in which the audience is invited to reflect on the Husby riots of 2013. The show is performed by RATS Theatre (Research for the Arts and Technologies in Society), a research scene working with public productions that mixes technology, theatre, film and interaction with the audience.

RATS Theatre is linked to the Department of Computer and Systems Sciences at Stockholm University.

” The Nobel Laureates were warm and curious persons who enjoyed our show. They thought that mobile phone theatre was interesting and followed the drama with great commitment” says Rebecca Forsberg, artistic Director at RATS.

During the twenty-minute long journy, she also had time to talk about research at Stockholm University and the profile area RATS, where technology and design creates dialogue around social issues.
