Q: What do you think of "The Dance Your Ph.D?" contest created in 2008 [] that invites scientists to interpret their theses through movement video? It is divided into five categories—biology, chemistry, physics, social sciences, and ML.

Krishna: When I Heard about it when it was created, I really was interested because I use art and literature to communicate science. I have been watching these dance your PhD videos since then.

OK, it is fun dancing your PhD.

It is also fun watching them like watching any dance performance.

But then I realized they don’t really make common people understand anything about the work!

Now watch the video posted above to understand what I mean.

Eventhough I understood the narration well, I could follow only a little about the dance and how it depicted the theme.

You have to have some knowledge about the dance to understand it, I think.

The scientists could have fun with it and the artists who collaborate with the scientists could also have fun.

Others could enjoy it like any other dance performance.

But its relation to science? That is another question!

Its importance in science communication? The answer is blowing in the wind!
