Flint and Tinder presents: The Curious Case of Phineas Gage
September 13th, 1898The Mid-town Manhattan Entirely Factual Re-Enactment Society of Medicine will present a dramatic performance concerning the most famous case in all of neuroscience: Phineas Gage. Featuring first hand accounts, historical artifact, and new evidence that challenges the conventional narrative concerning this curious case. The truth will be revealed through careful and dedicated use of the scientific method!

THE CURIOUS CASE OF PHINEAS GAGE is a new devised play  set within the performance of a Victorian touring stage show that goes diverges wildly into a Franke Reade-esque sci-fi adventure.  A late 19th century presentation exploring science, pseudo-science, and myth by Split Knuckle Theater. , which returns to Flint & Tinder on the heels of its heralded 2010 presentation of Endurance.

THE CURIOUS CASE OF PHINEAS GAGE is part of Flint & Tinder, a new curated theater series. Save money and buy a ticket bundle:

Flint & Tinder is a curated series of exciting new independent theater presented by The Tank in the heart of Manhattan's theater district. The series showcases ferociously imaginative emerging artists making work that spans (and often flagrantly combines) physical theater, puppetry, dance, clowning, and more. They are storytellers, relentless risk-takers, and theatrical alchemists shaping the future of the medium.

Now in its second season, this year's Flint & Tinder (formerly Theater at The Tank) will feature performances from across the country and around the world: returning artists Kyle Loven (My Dear Lewis in 2010) and Split Knuckle Theatre (Endurance in 2010), as well as St. Ann's Puppet Lab artist Marta MacRostie, renowned clown performer Summer Shapiro, and the bouffant clown company La Piarra from Mexico City. Flint & Tinder is curated by Josh Luxenberg and Jon Levin of Sinking Ship Productions. Maggie Baker is the series coordinator. For more information visit
