The Brain Piece
The Brain Piece illuminates the “dance” that continuously takes place in our minds. The project creates tangible and interactive experiences. Dance, music, film, and words enliven the inner life of the brain through overlapping perceptual domains. Oberfelder wants the audience to experience dance as a language that goes directly to the brain. Part One, cerebral and sensorial, provides an immersive installation (Mind Matters/Head Space) leading into Part Two (World of the Brain), a performance in the theater.
Directed, written and choreographed by Jody Oberfelder, collaborators include three dancers: Mary Madsen, Pierre Guilbault, Hannah Wendel, and 24 dancer/docents, film co-director Eric Siegel, neuroscientist Dr. Weiji Ma, Cecilia Fontanesi, Ed Lein from The Allen Institute for Brain Research, composers Daniel Wohl, Sean Hagerty (New Music USA Grant recipients) Missy Mazzoli and Angelica Negron. Our dramaturg is Jessica Applebaum, lighting designer is Kate Bashore, and our stage manager is Anna McDunn.
