ERLNMYR

What do we do?

ERLNMYR is the first com­pa­ny in Bel­gi­um that brings sci­en­ce com­mu­ni­ca­ti­on as a form of the­a­ter. A lec­tu­re is no lon­ger a one way street but beco­mes an enchan­ting game, offe­ring its audien­ce the oppor­tu­ni­ty to beco­me part of the inte­res­ting learning pro­cess we call science. 

ERLNMYR bases its acti­vi­ties on three pillars:

> TEACHING

> HOSTING

> PERFORMING

Who is ERLNMYR?

ERLNMYR was foun­ded by impro­vi­ser and doc­tor in lin­guis­tics Ben Ver­hoe­ven. During his sci­en­ti­fic career, he star­ted using methods from impro­vi­sa­ti­o­nal the­a­ter to aban­don the clas­sic take on lectures. 

ERLNMYR adapts each sci­en­ti­fic nar­ra­ti­ve to its tar­get audien­ce, whe­ther this is an audi­to­ri­um fil­led with sci­en­tists or a bunch of play­ful stu­dents in seconda­ry edu­ca­ti­on. As such, sci­en­ce com­mu­ni­ca­ti­on beco­mes a spark­ling spec­ta­cle just as much as an edu­ca­ti­o­nal experience.
