Untitled Theatre Company Presents THE NEUROLOGY OF THE SOUL

Untitled Theater Company No. 61 (UTC61) presents a new play by Edward Einhorn examining the nexus between neuroscience, marketing, art, and love. Set at a neuromarketing firm, it follows a neuroscientist who is trying to scientifically define love; his wife, an artist who is using her brain scans as the basis of video self-portraits; a marketer who is trying to apply the science of love to advertising; and a gallery owner who deals with art as a commodity. This multimedia production continues UTC61's ongoing interest in combining theater with the fields of economics and neuroscience.

Edward Einhorn recently wrote and directed The Marriage of Alice B. Toklas by Gertrude Stein, made a Critic's Pick in The New York Times by their co-chief reviewer, Jesse Green. He also previously curated the NEUROfest, a festival of plays about neurological conditions, and Money Lab, an economic vaudeville.

The play stars downtown regulars Ashley Griffin, Mick O'Brien, Yvonne Roen, and Matthew Trumbull. Set by Jim Boutin (Lypsinka), video by Magnus Pind Bjerre (3LD), costumes by Ramona Ponce (Ridiculous Theater Company), lighting by Jeff Nash (La Mama, Soho Rep), and sound by Sadah Espii Proctor (Nervous/System at the Brooklyn Academy of Music). An art exhibit of work inspired by neuroscience is curated by Marnie Benney of the SciArt Center, and it will be open an hour before each performance.

Untitled Theater Company No. 61 is a Theater of Ideas: scientific, political, philosophical, and above all theatrical. This is our 25th anniversary year of producing independent theater in New York, collaborating with venues such as La MaMa, HERE, The New Ohio, 3LD, The Brick, Judson Church, and other downtown spaces. They have also maintained a durable partnership with the Czech Republic, originally established though their work with former President Vaclav Havel during their 2006 Havel Festival. Recent UTC61 work have been Critic's Picks in The New York Times, The Village Voice, and Time Out New York. For more information visit www.untitledtheater.com.
