For Immediate Release

Physical entertainer Garry Krinsky kicks-off the University of Hawaiʻi at Hilo Performing Arts Center’s 2016-17 season with a high energy celebration of all things science with Toying with Science on Wednesday, September 28, at 7 pm.

It has been said that Krinsky resembles a living cartoon with his animated movement and non-stop energy. He was an original member of the Boston Buffoons, co-founder of the Patchwork Players, and a member of The Wright Bros., a New England vaudeville troupe.

Toying with Science explores the scientific principles of gravity, leverage, fulcrums and simple machines. Combining circus skills, mime, original music, and audience involvement, Krinsky investigates basic scientific information and delves into the imaginations of scientists who explore our world. He brings his science toys to life with motion, music, humor and insight. The performance is suitable for audiences of all ages.

“Mr. Krinsky created his Toying with Science program, originally commissioned by the Museum of Science in Boston, in 1995 and has since been touring it across the U.S. and Canada to rave reviews.” said Performing Arts Center Manager Lee Dombroski.
