Who Do You Think You Are

March 2008
Arizona State University Gammage

How does the vast labyrinth, the systems and the layers of chemical, muscular and neuronal activity, inform our tiniest interaction?

When we begin to examine the chemistry of emotion, thought and action, does our own scrutiny alter the emotion, the thought or the action? When studying the mind, does the mind study you? These questions prompted the creation of our company-devised work Who Do You Think You Are (The Brain Project). Our task is to construct a play that simultaneously suggests the complexity of human experience while celebrating its elegance and simplicity.
