‘Out of Mind’ in Hurleyville
HURLEYVILLE, NY — There will be a performance of “Out of Mind” at the Hurleyville Arts Center, 219 Main St. on Saturday, October 13 at 7:30 p.m. and Sunday, October 14 at 3 p.m.
“Out of Mind” is a hybrid science lecture-performance that explores the neurophysiology of depression. Theatre artist Tannis Kowalchuk lends her brain to Dr. Allison C. Waters, a neuroscientist and depression researcher, for an inquiry into how emotions are made in the mind and body. Waters and Kowalchuk unite in their disciplines to make scientific exploration accessible, entertaining and thought-provoking. Incorporating brain-wave data collected in laboratory experiments with Kowalchuk as the subject, this unconventional neuroscience lecture invites audiences to witness the chafe and charm of attempting to merge divergent forms. Audiences are encouraged to celebrate their own lived experience—as an embodied brain—in states of sadness and wonder. The performance ends with a lively question-and-answer period with the audience.
“Out of Mind” is a co-production with the NACL Theatre and the Hurleyville Arts Center. Admission costs $25 in advance or $30 at the door. For more information visit hurleyvilleartscentre.org.
