Explosive theatre: Bringing science to life

A theatre production has opened at the Science Museum which aims to teach its audience science "without them realising it".

The Energy Show tells the story of two students who have to devise experiments that demonstrate the nine forms of energy.

So much of the performance involves blowing things up on stage that no one is allowed to sit in the front row of the auditorium.

Here, Martin Lamb, the director and co-writer of the Energy Show explains how he thinks fusing science with theatre could ignite children's passion for the subject.

Filmed by Darryl Fedeski and John Galliver

Produced by Victoria Gill
