Are we just the puppet of our emotions?


No aspect of our mental life is more important to the quality and meaning of our existence than emotions. They are what make life worth living, or sometimes ending. They are what motivate our behaviour and influence our beliefs.
Maverick Theatre-maker Mick Gordon and neuropsychologist Paul Broks join forces with acclaimed puppeteers, Blind Summit, to use and abuse the tools of the theatre, an art form which creates and manipulates feelings, to explore the complicated and crucial arena of human emotion.


On Emotion opens at the Soho Theatre on 5th November 2008.
