Songs for my brain

Joachim Latarjet / Compagnie Oh ! Oui…

From 14 to 17 novembre

Création  Théâtre


Theme: The Brain, A Guided Tour

Songs for My Brain is a neurological musical review for one musician, three actors, one dancer and one videast very loosely based on the writings of neurologist Lionel Naccache.

A zany, poetic musical to talk about the brain—our brains—that are “made in such a way that we . . . humans are constantly creating fictions to make sense of reality.”

Oh ! Oui… has taken three neurological case studies and turned them into a playful show—a collection of stories that charmingly shed light on one of medicine’s most complex disciplines.
