UnRavelled: Live Screening & Discussion

Event Details

UnRavelled key art

The Global Brain Health Institute (GBHI) is presenting a live screening and discussion of UnRavelled, a critically acclaimed new drama that explores the fascinating connection between modern-day painter Anne Adams and early 20th century composer Maurice Ravel, both of whom experienced intense periods of virtuosic creativity while in the early stages of primary progressive aphasia, a form of frontotemporal dementia.

The 90-minute play will precede a live discussion featuring creators and producers of the play. UnRavelled is also available to watch for free anytime.
