The fabled “golden ratio” is a mathematical relationship that can be found throughout nature in the spiraling of a nautilus shell and the movements of subatomic particles. It can also be found in art and architecture. Salvador Dali’s “The Sacrament of the Last Supper” is explicitly based on the golden ratio, and the measurements repeat throughout the Parthenon in Greece and — one would assume — in the replica of the ruin that graces Nashville’s own Centennial Park. Tonight that site will play host to a performance that takes its name from the fantastic ratio. The Golden Ratio Project combines music, dance, poetry and visual arts performed and created by young people with disabilities in an effort to explore some of the prettiest math in the world. Free.
