The Story Collider: Consciousness

    Date: 11/21/2017

    Time: 8:30 pm

    Location: Caveat (21 A Clinton St., Manhattan)

    Price: $12 in advance

    Join The Story Collider for five true, personal stories about consciousness — both from the folks who study it and those who have experienced altered states of it. We’ll present stories about how one man’s art saved him after 20 years in a mental hospital and how Alzheimer’s resurrected a relationship between an estranged father and daughter, as well as some reflections on consciousness from a jail cell, a love story between a neuroscientist and a freestyle rapper, and the tale of how a young scientist’s entanglement in a riot helped shape his theory of consciousness. This performance features stories from cognitive neuroscientist Heather Berlin, rap artist and playwright Baba Brinkman, journalist Micah Danney, Columbia University consciousness researcher Erik Hoel, artist Issa Ibrahim, author Alison Smith, and guest host / producer Simia Bouzid.
