Description: Stupid Design 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. It is a satire of the theories of “intelligent design” that try to disguise creationism with science. Staging a conference, the show tries to demonstrate that it is not the formality and complexity of language that makes a theory “scientific”. The basis of science is the proof. In the show eight researchers (on video) are opposed to the actor.
