Perception underpins our sense of reality. It is fundamental to who we are and how we experience life. But how much can we actually trust our senses? A scientific, philosophical and creative approach to this question will invite you on a journey into your inner and outer experiences of the world.
MAS Productions present a night of happenings, talks, public experiments, performances, live music and films, which will explore altered states, visual illusions, hallucinations, dogmatic thinking and how these are linked to the creative act.
This event is FREE. A small number of performances will be ticketed but most of the programme is drop-in. The building might be busy and space is limited, so entry is not guaranteed.
A talk by scientist Dr. Edward Bracey joining the dots between the neuroscience and politics of perception.
'20 Minutes of Action’, a performance, installation and exploration of visual disturbances, by Nwando Ebizie.
A Haitian Vodou Dance Workshop and live drumming led by Zsuzsa Parrag, teaching some basic ritual steps that can create feelings of altered states of perception.
Three talks will be British Sign Language-interpreted. To book a place with a view of the interpreter, or if you have any other accessibility requirements, email [email protected]
