Barbican Weekender: Brain Waves

Inviting you to take a creative journey into the grey matter, the Barbican hosts two brainy days of dance, theatre, music and art, all free. Highlights include 'Brain Flash' – a brain-inspired flash mob led by Dr Peter Lovatt, where members of the public will learn a short dance routine to become part of a human brain wave in the Barbican foyers; Chris Green and friends in the Singing Hypnotist's Tent, which is the base for a programme of hypnotic and mesmeric acts designed to put you into a trance; and Guerrilla Science which should engage families and adults alike with a range of interactive events and experiments, from a sonic tour of the brain to jelly brain dissection workshops – where you get to eat the results. Part of the 'Wonder: Art and Science on the Brain' series of events devised by the Barbican and the Wellcome Trust.
