Performing Data: Neurodegenerative Disease Research and Lived Experience Share the Stage

Presented by Emory University, Georgia Tech, McGill University, National Circus School of Montreal - Centre for Circus Arts Research, Innovation and Knowledge Transfer

How can we bring complex issues like Parkinson's Disease to life through the arts? Co-created by neuroscientists, performing artists, people living with Parkinson’s disease and caregivers, Piece of Mind unites neuroscientific knowledge and lived experiences on the same stage. Through impressive acrobats, absurd theatrics, moving choreographies, and audience participation, the artists seek to shed light on challenges and resilience in face of Parkinson's disease, address social stigma and misperceptions, and pique curiosity on current research avenues. Following the performance, we'll have a live panel with the research team, performers, and local experts on Parkinson's disease.
