Why do we dream, and what do our dreams mean?

The average person spends several years of their lives dreaming, yet will remember only one or two dreams a night. Are our dreams really, as some researchers think, completely random and without any meaning at all? Or are they, as Freud thought, the most important window we have into our innermost secrets and motivations?

This talk will look at the biology, psychology, and psychopathology of dreams. Which brain structures are involved in dreaming? When do we dream? Why do we remember so few of our dreams? What are nightmares? Why do we have recurrent dreams? Are dreams a means of dealing with threats? Are there recurring symbols in dreams, and do dream dictionaries have any basis in science? Do dreams reveal our repressed thoughts and desires? Are dreams an aid to creativity? Can dreams predict the future?

The emphasis of the talk is on the psychological explanation of dream content. Why do dreams have the form they do, and can we learn anything about ourselves by examining them?

Every day we need to make decisions from what to eat for lunch, which car to buy, what job to choose or what partner is the best match for you. For many years that has been a big misconception that in order to make sound decisions we need to rationally assess pros and cons of each, what lead to many people being utterly stuck in indecision. Moreover, with the enormous amount of things to choose from many of us also face so-called analysis paralysis (or the paradox of choice as Barry Schwartz would call). In this talk neuroscientist Gabija Toleikyte (PhD) will discuss what neuroscience suggests on how to make the best decisions and overcome the traps of indecision.

Tickets are available below:
We trust our memory is reliable, and that our recollection of events is an accurate reflection of what actually happened, but this is not the case. We've known, since the 1920s, that memory is reconstructive, rather than reproductive. In other words, memory does not work like a video recorder, but instead is subject to cognitive biases that places new information within the context of pre-existing memories. We do not remember things exactly as they happened, but rather as we want to remember them.

In this talk, Moheb Costandi will describe classic research into the reconstructive nature of memory, and explains the implications of it for eyewitness testimony and suspect identification, both of which are heavily reliant on memory. He will then go on to describe a new way of thinking about memory - that its main function is not to recall the past, but to predict the future.

Costandi trained as a molecular and developmental neurobiologist and now works as a freelance writer specialising in neuroscience. He has written for the BBC, Nature, New Scientist, and Scientific American, among others. He is the author of Neuroplasticity (MIT Press, 2016) and 50 Human Brain Ideas You Really Need to Know (Quercus, 2013), and he also writes the Neurophilosophy blog, hosted by The Guardian.

Juju's Presents: ACT
Actor- Chorus- Text Training

Juju's proudly presents the ACT training program, in collaboration with Moon Fool Theatre Company.

The ACT training workshops, developed and run by Moon Fool founder and Director Anna-Helena McLean, provide actors with drop in sessions, regular training, and the opportunity to engage in intensive workshops and residencies before participating in in-house productions at Juju's.

This approach to theatre effectively combines the native folkloric, esoteric, classical and contemporary in a comprehensive, accessible and mind-blowing way.

'Company' ethos is encouraged in participants, with trust, mutuality, and a sense of communality emerging through collective practice.

The method: ACT is a learned method of interweaving music, movement, poetry, and story in any given spatial location. The training exercises in musicality and physicality incorporate:
-  Gardzienice Company methodology
-  Acrobatic partner and counterbalance techniques
-  The art of gesture with hand, body and chorus
-  Polyphonic singing of indigenous folk and gypsy music from across the Globe, as well as original composition
-  Dynamic speech work with physically charged interpretation

The ACT ensemble is currently developing a performance for this year's East London Fringe Festival. More details to be announced soon.

" A world class theatre creator /  Director with an uncanny ability to synthesize her music and physical actor training into full out, lush production." -  Kristen Schmidt, Founding Director, Walkabout Theatre, Chicago

" Moon Fool has fused together a unique theatrical practice that is proven ground-breaking and world class" -  Dexter Bullard, Head of Graduate Acting, The Theatre School, DePaul University

" Ensemble work at its very best" -  Kevin Green, New City Stage
