Event description

Description

Theatre tells human-scale stories, using human beings as its artistic medium. Medicine is the humane application of human ingenuity to the human condition – and yet being under medical care can be a de-humanizing experience. So, can theatre help to ‘humanize’ medicine?

In this performance-lecture, Dr Alex Mermikides shares her experiences of creating theatre with and for medical professionals and their patients – and argues that the relationship between theatre and medicine can be more complex than this question implies.

This event is part of the Being Human festival of the humanities (www.beinghumanfestival.org).


What Is ResearchWorks?

The Guildhall School’s ResearchWorks is a dynamic programme of events centred around the School’s key research strands, bringing together staff, students and guests of international standing. We run regular events throughout the term intended to share the innovative research findings of the school and its guests with students, staff and the public.
