The Female Role Model Project, an interactive theatrical experience incorporating live neuroscientific recordings, is coming to the New York City’s premier hub for arts and technology- 3-Legged Dog (3LD) for a four week engagement November 7th through December 3rd, 2018.
Thematically the piece explores representations of female role models and their evolution in a time of great sociopolitical change and the possibility of transforming our brains. It combines theatrical performance and interactive games with live recordings of neural activity from both actors and audience members using Emotiv EEG headsets.

Transforma Theatre is a center where art tackles how scientific ideas and metaphysical knowledge about consciousness overlap. We explore the nature of existence and consciousness through science and shamanic rituals and express them through the creation of multimedia performances. We are pioneering a new form of theatrical expression and developing a close community of artists and scientists instilled with the freedom of thinking and creating in alternative ways. We engage in practices such as yoga, mindfulness, meditation, ceremonies and shamanic journeying and live one with nature to elevate our perception and knowledge about humans, universe and how it all works.
Our way of living, communicating, and computing has changed drastically in the last decade with possibilities to transform one’s brain and modify our senses. Our goal is to align forms of theater with current scientific research in neuroscience, artificial intelligence, epigenetics, and communicate this knowledge of technological possibilities to our audiences in a new pioneering way of storytelling.
We are seeking to expand the understanding of consciousness and share this enlightenment through art.
Transforma's GALA at the cell was a tremendous success! THANK YOU ALL for coming and playing with us! It was unforgettable! We greatly appreciate your support and are off to a good start. However, we still have a long way to go to reach our goal of $50,000 for a 4 week Off Broadway run of The Female Role Model Project at New York's prime art and technology hub: 3LD (Three Legged Dog)! We will employ over 14 unique artists and scientists to marry the most fascinating facets of science and art and to explore how our role models influence our mind, brain, personality, and behavior. If you liked what you saw and enjoyed the experience, then please share this with anyone you think may be interested.
You can show us how much you loved Transforma Theatre's mission, excerpts of The Female Role Model Project that connect neuroscience with interactive theatre, Barnaby Ruhe's legendary hot'n'fast portraits, Three Bad Pennies swing band and Il Falco's Italian dinner by a tax deductable donation.
Take a look at 3LD's Artistic Reel for examples of their past performances:
"3-Legged Dog (3LD) stands out in the world of experimental performance by virtue of its technical and artistic rigor, as well as its commitment to breaking boundaries. Whether the product of resident or associate artists, a performance at 3LD will immerse the viewer, demonstrate a mastery of craft, and arise out of a thoughtful aesthetic process."
To support this endeavor, tax deductible donations can be made through Eventbrite by clicking on tickets and using the donation option or via PayPal direct link or to firstname.lastname@example.org.
