About: A Disappearing Number

Staged with Complicite's characteristic elegance and startling visual originality, A Disappearing Number takes as its starting point one of the most mysterious and romantic mathematical collaborations of all time.

This is a story about connections between ideas, cultures and times. In London a man attempts to unravel the secrets of his lover. In Bangalore a woman collapses on a train. In Cambridge in 1914 Englishman GH Hardy seeks to comprehend the ideas of the Indian prodigy Srinivasa Ramanujan.

Simultaneously a narrative and an investigation, A Disappearing Number weaves a provocative theatrical pattern about our relentless compulsion to understand.

Under the artistic direction of Simon McBurney, Complicite is one of the world’s leading theatre companies. Its production of The Elephant Vanishes was a sell-out success in bite03 and bite04. Other recent work includes Measure for Measure and A Minute Too Late, both at the National Theatre.

Award-winning designer Michael Levine created the remarkable sets for The Elephant Vanishes and has worked internationally for the past 23 years.

Nitin Sawhney is widely regarded as one of the most creative talents in music today, a pioneer who has collaborated with many of the world's leading artists and music producers.

‘One of the most prodigiously original, inventive, and lyrical productions of our day.’
Financial Times (on The Elephant Vanishes)
