Brain Storm
A LUCID LUDIC PRODUCTION IN ASSOCIATION WITH WHY NOT THEATRE
FEBRUARY 27-MARCH 8 2020 AT DANCEMAKERS STUDIO THEATRE

A visually arresting and comically haunting look at the ramifications of brain surgery and how one woman finds her way in a reality that is forever different. BRAIN STORM takes you into the operating theatre, to dissect the question; are our brains magic, machines  or both?

Writer/Director Taliesin McEnaney draws on the work of famous Canadian neurosurgeon Dr. Wilder Penfield, the writings of her spiritual medium grandmother, and a brain injury in her own family to craft this unique piece of physical theatre.

Created in collaboration with the cast, Brain Storm will have its World Premiere in February 2020 following a critically-acclaimed workshop production at Toronto Fringe.

Winner of the Toshi Knife Cutting Edge Award at the 2017 Toronto Fringe Festival

Outstanding Production + Outstanding Direction + Outstanding Ensemble - The visually striking and thoughtful Brain Storm was one of the best shows at the festival.
