The Intuition Project presented by Ghost River Theatre

September 12, 2018 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm MDT

In Spring 2018, the artistic researchers at Ghost River Theatre met in Calgary, AB to investigate the most mysterious of the senses: intuition. After weeks of testing, the final exercise involved a Ouija board, which resulted in the artistic laboratory being immediately shut down. In an attempt to conclude the investigation process, these findings will finally be made public.

Have you ever had a feeling that you just “knew”?

Ghost River Theatre brings the fifth installment of the wild and imaginative Six Senses Series to Beakerhead, following a week of workshop presentations with Vertigo Mystery Theatre. You’re invited behind the curtain and into the workroom as we immerse the audience in our investigation process, unfolding experiments in meditation, Extra Sensory Perception (ESP) tests, and psychometry readings to access and evaluate the innermost sensation which lives between feeling and fact.

THE INTUITION PROJECT is a one-of-a-kind performance experience that asks you to look inside yourself and test what you believe is real.

“Imagine how a dash of neuroscience or the nostalgic memory of being a teen playing the Ouija Board might inspire your sense of knowing,” says GRT Artistic Director Eric Rose, who directs the show in addition to creating the concept. “Exploring this type of experience is how we get to analyze the limits of belief and better understand the divide between certainty and curiosity.” The team has also utilized the talents and know-how of a variety of experts in the field of intuition; including social psychologists, a reluctant medium, neuroscientists, and UBC’s Visual Cognition Lab.

Are you a believer or a skeptic?

September 12-15 at Vertigo Theatre, 8pm with a 2pm matinee on September 15th September 19-22 at the West Village Theatre, 8pm with a midnight show on September 22.
