Exeter Northcott Theatre in association with the University of Exeter presents

Beyond My Control


Science meets theatre in this interactive modelling performance about epilepsy, excitability and all things neurological.

Can mathematicians at the University of Exeter abandon their computers and recreate complex brain networks using theatre improvisation techniques? Can the logical world of mathematics and the unpredictable world of theatre come together to help us see what’s really going on inside our heads? We think so.

Why not come and see for yourself as we combine improvised scenes, verbatim testimony and top mathematical research in a unique theatrical experience engaging with epilepsy. Audience members will be invited to offer feedback and the chance to interact with the performance, as we explore just how much control we have over our brains.

This IMPACT workshop is funded by the EPSRC (Engineering & Physical Sciences Research Council). IMPACT is a collaborative programme using the medium of performance to facilitate public engagement for the University of Exeter’s world class research.
