The Science of Ayahuasca: Hallucinogenic panacea or tourist rip off?

Until very recently it was an obscure hallucinogenic brew from the Amazon jungle, but now Ayahuasca has fast become the most intriguing beverage on the planet. Droves of Westerners are increasingly heading out to purpose built retreats in South America in search of professional inspiration, physical and psychological healing, and spiritual insight, but are such motives based on desperate hope and an opportunistic tourist industry or are there well researched effective uses for ayahuasca that match any of its growing hype as a panacea for all 21st century ills.

This talks pours the known research into a big pot, boils it down, and filters out the chewy bits to give a concentrated taste of The Science of Ayahuasca, covering the potential medical, physical, psychological, ecological, creative and spiritual uses of ayahuasca. Come as you are, no bucket required.

A ritual of personal transformation, ‘Anosis’ explores three emotional states relating to water; the concepts of sinking, floating and flying.

The audience dives into a visual environment, tracking the dancer’s transition across the three states and utilizing the ‘model of affect’ as a roadmap. The circumplex model used in neuroscience proposes that all affective states arise from two fundamental neurophysiological systems, one related to pleasure and displeasure and the other to arousal and deactivation.

‘Anosis’, the Greek word for buoyancy, describes the force which lifts us up, counteracting what brings us down until we reach equilibrium. The body becomes the vessel carrying us through the struggle of processing what we experience in our lives. This journey from sinking to flying is a continual cycle that traces old patterns and carves new paths.

‘Dance-as-design’ brings together the four disciplines of dance, music, fashion and architectural design and integrates scientific theories. Georgia Tegou’s research and practice blurs the boundaries of dance and movement with visual and spatial arts, highlighting their interdependent relationship.

Doors: 7pm Talk starts: 7.30pm

Love’s been around a long time. As an evolutionary anthropologist Dr. Anna Machin is fascinated by what makes us fall in love and what keeps us there. In this talk she will use the results of cutting edge research from the fields of neuroscience, genetics, evolutionary theory and psychology to peel back the levels of explanation to reveal what we know about human love. Why do we need love in our lives? How can love be a source of such intense euphoria but at the same time be so incredibly painful? Why are some people better at staying in relationships than others? How come short, bald millionaires can pull supermodels? And is it really the case that love is addictive? She will explain how a wonderful cocktail of chemicals motivates us to form relationships, how a complex mix of our genetics and psychology combine to influence how we feel when we are in love and how neuroscience may be able to prove that love truly is blind.

Dr. Anna Machin is an evolutionary anthropologist, writer and broadcaster. She is fascinated by the science behind close human relationships; those between lovers, friends, parents and children. She is a visiting academic at the University of Oxford where she researches human social behavior and is a regular contributor to TV, radio and print including two seasons of “Married at First Sight” (Channel 4) and the upcoming series “Meet the Humans” (BBC Earth).

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
