Patricia George Decio Theatre

Three outstanding pioneers represent the achievements of women in the field of science and technology: the double Nobel Prize winner and discoverer of radioactivity Marie Curie (1867–1934), the Austrian-Swedish nuclear physicist Lise Meitner (1878–1968), and the Viennese Hollywood actress Hedy Lamarr (1914–2000) with the invention of frequency hopping.

Incidents of their lives, achievements, and impediments as well as the contents of their research and the passion for their work are in the center of the play "Curie_Meitner_Lamarr_indivisible", produced by the Viennese association PortraitTheater. Illustrated with music and videos, the 95-minute performance shows entertaining portraits of extraordinary women in history.

The successful theater performance, directed by Sandra Schűddekopf, with Anita Zieher impersonating the three women, had already been invited to Belgium, Germany, Iran, Poland, Switzerland (CERN), and Romania.

Co-presented by the Department of Physics, Joint Institute for Nuclear Astrophysics.
