What happens inside our bodies and minds while performing and participating in the arts, and what are the mental and psychological benefits of it? In this last virtual lecture of the year Prof. Dr. Judith Revers dives into the field of performance art and dance with New York based artist Vangeline, who’s involved in artistic research with neuroscientific methods around the Japanese artform Butoh. Together they will be investigating interdisciplinary research in Arts and Neurosciences and its implications for the Arts Therapies.
