STAGE Scientists, Technologists, and Artists Generating Exploration

Collaboratory Projects

The development process utilized to create Collaboratory projects is particularly unique because:

The Brain Project

The Brain Project, an eponymous new play collaboratively created by professional actors and eminent scientists, is the STAGE Collaboratory’s first theatrical creation.

In The Brain Project, the lives of a photojournalist, a detective, an art authentication expert, and a fortune teller intersect around a bizarre crime. A tale of perception that parallels the functions of the brain and explores critical themes emerging from modern neuroscience, The Brain Project examines how we piece together the stories – real or illusory – of our selves. Do the firings of certain neurons in a particular pattern ultimately determine who we are?

The Brain Project participants include prominent scientists and professional artists.
