Beyond My Control, an interactive performance about epilepsy, excitability and all things neurological will be presented at the Exeter Northcott Theatre in March.
Can mathematicians at the University of Exeter abandon their computers and recreate complex brain networks using theatre improvisation techniques? Can the logical world of mathematics and the unpredictable world of theatre come together to help us see what’s really going on inside our heads?
Beyond My Control is part of the University of Exeter’s IMPACT programme which uses the medium of performance to facilitate public engagement for the University of Exeter’s world class research. Funded by the EPSRC (Engineering & Physical Sciences Research Council), the collaboration is led by John Terry, Professor of Biomedical Modelling at the University, and Exeter Northcott’s Paul Jepson.
Combining improvised scenes, verbatim testimony and top mathematical research this unique theatrical experience will explore just how much control we have over our brains.
Beyond My Control takes place on Thursday, March 9. Pootle over for tickets.
