Cahoots NI present Danny Carmos Mathematical Mysteries.

Cahoots NI present Danny Carmos Mathematical Mysteries.

The organisers of a what’s described as a Mathematical Mysteries show due to take place in the Millennium Forum later this month have promised that audiences will be dazzled by what they see on the day.

Paul McAneany, founder of Cahoots NI, the company behind the character Danny Carmo says people young and old will be blown away by the unique blend of Maths and magic.

“It’s a real spectacle with huge effects but at the very centre there are mathematical principles but they are very well hidden so it doesn’t feel as if you’re constantly having information thrown at you. At the end of the show everybody gets a free book so people can go home and look at the Maths behind it all and have fun working it all out. It’s a particularly useful resource for teachers.

“We are delighted to announce this production of Danny Carmo’s Mathematical Mysteries. Following the huge success of the award-winning ‘Lights, Camera, Math ‘a’ Magic’ this engaging and highly entertaining show puts the magic into maths in a mind-boggling, bamboozling and fantastically fun way. Children will learn magic tricks to mystify mum and dad and muddle the Maths teacher. It will most definitely spark an interest in Maths to last a lifetime.”

Gilly Campbell, Arts Council Development Officer for Drama and Dance, said:“Cahoots NI is one of the best theatre companies we are fortunate to have working in the region, who continue to deliver innovative and exciting productions. Danny Carmo’s Mathematical Mysteries tour combines cutting-edge technology with education and the arts to fire the creativity of our young people to learn in a meaningful way with lasting impact. The Arts Council is delighted to support this production and wish Cahoots NI every success.”

Danny Carmo’s Mathematical Mysteries will run in the Millennium Forum on June 21 and is suitable for children aged seven plus.
