Please ASK! – Art Science Kick is a European project that will produce and showcase nationally and internationally three science theater productions. Please ASK! brings together three innovative cultural organizations: Arte Urbana Collectif from Sofia, Pro Progressione from Budapest and Dafa Puppet Theatre from Prague. The project is an important milestone in establishing a European network of science theater practitioners. Please ASK! also aims to make artists more responsible towards filtering knowledge attained through the use of scientific method from assumptions that may seem appealing but that are not rooted in scientific evidence.

In the initial stage of Please ASK!, the focus will be on sharing artistic know-how and practices and creating a laboratory for different approaches to performing art – science collaborations. The developed methodology will then be implemented in creating science theater performances. Each of these performances will explore different scientific topics and will target diverse audiences. Arte Urbana Collectif will work on Astrobiology for a general audience, Pro Progressione – on ​​Evolutionary Biology for a family audience and Dafa Puppet Theatre – on Quantum Physics towards young audiences.
