Off-Leash Area's latest dance and theater fusion is Maggie's Brain, a performance about a young woman reeling from the onset of schizophrenia. It is a heartfelt exploration of the effects of mental illness on a young woman and her family who have not yet discovered the tools to cope with a situation over which they seem to have no control. Using a choreographic vocabulary that is both frenetic and sinuous, and a stunning visual landscape, Maggie's Brain highlights the person behind the illness, shattering the stigma and prejudice in a performance experience that is both emotionally powerful and transforming.
Join us for a discussion with the artists following the January 24th performance as part of our Meet the Company: Talk-Back Series.
