My favorite local circus/invented music troupe Lelavision is back in town, and performing at the Museum of  Glass this Friday evening.

Their act is the culmination of the museum’s six-week-long 
program “The Science of Art,” which guides school students through the museum looking at art through a scientific lens (at what temperature does glass melt? what happens if you mix it with other materials?)

Lelavision, the Vason-based husband-and-wife duo of Ela Lamblin and Leah Mann, collaborate their gymnastic, dance, music and engineering skills to create performances integrating movement with invented instruments, often to illustrate a scientific concept. My March story on them previewed their residency at the Museum of Glass, which involved exploring metagenetics with a newly invented glass instrument. (Check out Peter Haley’s awesome photos – totally creative in themselves.)

Lelavision will be performing at 6 p.m. May 28 in the grand hall of the Museum of Glass, 1801 Dock St., Tacoma. Other science/art activities begin 5 p.m. Free with admission: $12/$10/free for under-five. 866-4-MUSEUM, museumofglass.org/education/science-of-art, www.lelavision.com
