When it comes to health, what is ‘reasonable’? How can poetry and music help us to understand our lived experiences? What even is ‘reason’ when we think about mental health? This event will explore these issues and present research in a way that you’ve probably never seen before!
For one night only, researchers from Durham University’s Institute for Medical Humanities will be partnering with RT Projects, a local mental health arts charity, to bring you an evening of live performance, poetry, stories, comedy, music, and chaos. Together on the cabaret stage academics, local musicians, and persons with lived experience of illness will share their insights in a variety of performance styles. It’s research, but with added jazz hands!
So, as Liza Minnelli once said, "what good is sitting alone in your room? […] come to the [research] cabaret old chum, come to the [research] cabaret!"
