Days later, Cliff Pickover highlighted a curious factoid: When Nash wrote his . thesis in 1950, "Non Cooperative Games" at Princeton University, the dissertation (you can read it online here) was brief. It ran only 26 pages. And more particularly, it was light on citations. Nash's diss cited two texts: One was written by John von Neumann & Oskar Morgenstern, whose book, Theory of Games and Economic Behavior (1944), essentially created game theory and revolutionized the field of economics; the other cited text, "Equilibrium Points in n-Person Games," was an article written by Nash himself. And it laid the foundation for his dissertation, another seminal work in the development of game theory, for which Nash won the Nobel Prize in Economic Sciences in 1994 .
Ramin Gray, Hofesh Shechter and Simon Stephens are planning a new production in 2015 that seeks to combine dance and text. Seventeen is an experiment in form and content that will explore the inevitable decay of all living things.
We are looking for brave and engaged performers who feel equally at home expressing themselves physically and verbally. The show might involve nudity and delivering written text.
We will be meeting performers between December 11 and 20, 2013 in London.
