Crossing Boundaries: Surgery as a Site of Performance and Craftsmanship

April 4 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm

| Free

Roger Kneebone explores surgery as a site of performance and craftsmanship as well as the application of scientific knowledge. Based on extended collaborations with musicians, magicians, puppeteers and craftsmen, Kneebone identifies parallels between apparently unconnected domains of expert practice. Much of his work uses simulation as a means to communicate what words alone cannot capture. Vivid scenarios invite publics to experience the world of surgery, taking part in operations performed by actual surgeons and their teams.
