Who is Professor Blue?

A case study.

Professor Blue started off as a microbe of an idea, by Maria Laskar, a theatre director, writer, producer (and a childrenmatarian) from Montréal, Canada.

And then…

Professor Blue received funding from:


cover of brochure for the cambridge science festival from 2009
 poster announcing professor blue appearing at the cambridge science festival

Maria made a visual installation to accompany showing the videos, in conjunction with Professor Blue World Headquarters (a subsidiary of Slippery Banana Peel Industries, Inc), at the Cambridge Science Festivals in 2008 and 2009.  She also wrote a performance piece for a live audience at the Museum of Science in Boston.

Other Support

Professor Blue received generous funding and support from the following organizations and companies for the live performances:
