Theater Of The Mind

Denver Center’s Off-Center programming wing announced the creative team for the immersive production Theater of the Mind,  co-created by Talking Heads front-man David Byrne and writer Mala Gaonkar.  

Inspired by both historical and current lab research, Theater of the Mind takes you on an immersive journey inside how we see and create our worlds. Co-created by Talking Heads frontman and artist David Byrne and writer Mala Gaonkar, the show uses stories from their own lives to shape a narrative you’ll see, feel, taste and hear. Witness the wonders of your mind for yourself as you follow The Guide through a spectacular 15,000-square-foot installation with 16 fellow audience members. As you explore intriguing environments, participate in a narrative and try a series of sensory experiments, your Guide will question how beliefs, memories and even our identities are less fixed than we think. Caution: the brain may wander. Side effects may include a distrust of your own senses, a disorientation of self, and a mild to severely good time. You may not be who you think you are. But we’re all in it together.” 

Over the past year, our founder, Heidi Boisvert has been working in that creative team as the technology designer. The creative team is led by Director Andrew Scoville with Assistant Directors Amanda Berg Wilson and Betty Hart. The creative team includes Brooklyn Research and slow immediate as technology consultants, Neil Patel for scenic design, Jeanette Oi-Suk Yew for lighting design, Cody Spencer for sound design, Sarita Fellows on costume design, casting by Grady Soapes, CSA, and Douglas Langworthy as dramaturg.
