Theatres of Anatomy

We are currently in development of the project 'Theatres of Anatomy' and we are excited to share more details soon. 

Theatres of Anatomy is an extraordinary journey into the ideas behind today’s notion of bodies, performativity and science. Taking a cross disciplinary look at the history of staging anatomies, this project places public dissections alongside private ones to explore how Theatres of Anatomy are spaces of scientific and philosophical learning and, at the same time, places of intense, contrasting human experiences.
