ISWA is coordinated by Franco Rustichelli of Polytechnic University of Marches( Italy) and involves partners from 15 European countries.
ISWA intends to challenge the way Science is known and taught, which often misrepresents the fact that Science originates from creative-emotional processes and needs. This lack of realistic description, of how scientific discoveries are intimately related to creativity, impedes a deeper understanding of the true meaning of Science and its implication in everyday life.
Therefore, ISWA promotes artistic and scientific collaborations, initiating events such as screenings, installations, dance and music performances etc., which are presented throughout Europe. In ISWA, art and Science are considered complementary.
Art is seen as an active element influencing scientists: a powerful tool to involve intellectual and emotional processes (body and mind together), in understanding and interpreting scientific concepts; while science inspires and enriches the artistic work through, images, knowledge, formulas.

Der einzigartige Charakter dieser Produktion basiert aus dem Zusammenspiel verschiedener Medien und Disziplinen. Inspiriert durch die Bewegungen und Schwingungen der Atome und Moleküle wird dem Publikum durch das Medium Tanz Naturwissenschaft näher gebracht und die Faszination des Lebens auf künstlerisch-tänzerischer Ebene bewusst gemacht.

"On the Way to Immortality" ist eine interdisziplinäre Tanzperformance und Teil des europäischen Projektes ISWA (Immersion into the scientific worlds through arts) gefördert von der Europäischen Kommission.  ISWA fördert künstlerische und wissenschaftliche Kooperationen wie Filmvorführungen, Tanz, Musik, etc., die in ganz Europa präsentiert werden. Kunst ist ein wirksames Werkzeug, welches unter Einbeziehung von intellektuellen und emotionalen Prozessen den Weg ebnet Wissenschaft zu verstehen und zu interpretieren. 
Die Tanzperformance wurde von Franco Rustichelli (Professor für Physik, Koordinator des europäischen Projekts ISWA) in Kooperation mit DOCK 11 und der choreografischen Leitung von Jadi Carboni (Tänzerin, Choreographin) konzipiert.

“Sulla via dell’ immortalitá ” (On the way to immortality) is an interdisciplinary dance performance, part of the project  Immersion in the Scientific World through Art - ISWA- supported and funded by the European Commission (see annex).

It is conceived by Franco Rustichelli (full professor of Physics at the University of Ancona, Italy, with several experiences in artistic productions including a choreography), with the collaboration of DOCK11. It is choreographed by Jadi Carboni and Franco Rustichelli and the participation of 8 dancers.
‘Sulla via dell’ immortalitá’ is inspired by the movements of atoms, the vibrations of the molecules, the creation of life through cells, the proliferation and differentiation of stem cells, linking these phenomena to cognitive growth and, social and emotional development.
“On the way to immortality”
 develop in 8 scenes, with a duration of approximately 45 minutes, supported by an interactive video projection and an especially composed digital-instrumental soundtrack. The articulation of these artistic languages creates a grid of movements, related to organic processes, sometimes developing on a chessboard, where the pieces are playing a life history.
In fact a peculiarity of this performance is given by the interaction of different skills and the complementary work of a dancer-choreographer like Jadi Carboni and a scientist with an artistic background like Franco Rustichelli.
