WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Through both art and science, explore the remarkable connection between mind, brain and body. Based on his collaboration with neurophysiologist Jonathan Cole, performance artist Andrew Dawson presents The Articulate Hand. Through movement, we uncover the grace, beauty and psychological consequences of impairments of the hand. Only through loss do we reveal the significance of our hands, and the role that the brain has in compensating for that loss. Dawson and Cole will be joined in a post-performance conversation by plastic surgeon Kodi Azari, whose groundbreaking work with hand transplant patients offers complementary insights into how the brain copes with dramatic and traumatic bodily changes.
