February 27 - March 8
We’re happy to be in association with Lucid Ludic’s production of BrainStorm, written and directed by Why Not Associate Producer Taliesin McEnaney. The “visually arresting and intellectually compelling” physical theatre piece exploring brain injury is coming to Dancemakers Studio Theatre this February!
A poetic and comically haunting look at the ramifications of brain surgery and how one woman finds her way in a reality that is forever different. BrainStorm takes you into the operating theatre, to dissect the question; are our brains magic, machines – or both? Taliesin and the ensemble draw on the work of famous Canadian neurosurgeon Dr. Wilder Penfield, the writings of her spiritual medium grandmother, and a brain injury in her own family to craft this unique piece of physical theatre.
“Outstanding Production + Outstanding Direction + Outstanding Ensemble – The visually striking and thoughtful BrainStorm
was one of the best shows at the festival.”
