Matt Goldman, co-founder of Blue Man Group, writes:
"In Blue Man group, there is no separating art from science from technology from math from engineering. It is the integration and recombination of all these disciplines that leads to our show on stages worldwide. One scene from a past Blue Man performance went as far as explaining and demonstrating the phenomenon of synesthesia — hearing colors or seeing sound. We also give our audiences a tour through the human brain. In all cases, we try to combine science and art in a way that is informative, accurate, funny, accessible and entertaining."
