Description: Nascer da Evolução (Birth of Evolution) is a play produced by CQD and the Collective CAUSA.AC, written by Davide Marçal and André Levi, staged by Amândio Pinheiro and presented at the Science Museum in Coimbra in the context of the European Researchers’ Night - Scientists on Stage and Science Week. The show makes an implicit allusion to the growing movement, especially in the U.S. seeking to pass off Intelligent Design (the idea that biodiversity is the result of an intelligent design) as a scientific theory. It is also an approach on the ability of bacteria to develop resistance to antibiotics, and the importance of responsible antibiotics’ use.
