Artistic performance “The Art of Brainwaves”

 

 

Yordan Varbanov is a professional actor and takes on the difficult task of proving how “the consumption of art products” proves to us, the people, how much we need the dope called creativity.

The Art of Brainwaves (a diagram of a person) is a performance exploring man’s relationship with nature and how this interaction affects his desire to connect with it more often, by stripping himself of the vanity and power of his own ego.

Description of the idea

The artistic project is an intervention between an artist and a professional from the field of neurobiology, focusing on one of the main themes of the research – Empathy.

On stage, we will witness the creation of sounds resembling the melody that brain waves create when one is under the influence of music, poetry, visual art, theatre, etc.

The creative project adopts this thesis as a basic point of view for finding or recalling the empathic connection of the human individual with nature, based on the mythological image of the goddess Gaia and the feminine of “mother nature”.
