"Tin, the 50th element"

I wish I could see this ballet (link courtesy of the always excellent Dave Lull). More details on the piece (based on Oliver Sacks' Awakenings) here - the videos are well worth a look, though it's hard to get a real sense of the Tobias Picker score based on snippets.


  1. I feel dumb for not having known that tin was the fiftieth element. (Earth, water, air, fire, roof!) Esp. given all the boggle and scrabble points I've leveraged out of stannates and stannites.

  2. Mmm love Oliver Sacks
