The Intuition Project at Beakerhead 2018
Have you ever had a feeling that you just "knew"?
In May 2018, the Ghost River Theatre company met at the West Village Theatre in Calgary, AB to investigate the most mysterious of the senses: intuition.
The artistic researchers from GRT (in association with UBC's Visual Cognition Lab and a group of social psychologists, mediums, and neuroscientists) executed a series of experiments in meditation, Extra Sensory Perception (ESP) tests, and psychometry readings to access and evaluate their innermost intuition. The final exercise involved a Ouija board, after which the artistic laboratory was immediately shut down.
After weeks of testing and experimentation, in September 2018 these findings will finally be made public.
The newest installment of the Six Senses Series (SCENT BAR, TOMORROWS CHILD, TOUCH, TASTE), THE INTUITION PROJECT invites you to analyse the evidence for yourselves.
Tested in partnership with Vertigo Mystery Theatre and proudly presented to the world as part of Beakerhead 2018, THE INTUITION PROJECT asks you to look inside yourself and test what you believe is real.
Are you a Believer or a Skeptic? Will what you think is possible be changed by the end of the evening? Join us at Beakerhead 2018 to find out.
