David Byrne’s “Theater of the Mind” to Premiere August 2020 in Denver

An immersive installation by the Talking Heads frontman and writer Mala Gaonkar is a journey inside the human brain.

“Theater of the Mind,” an immersive 15,000-square-foot installation that takes its audience on a sensory journey through the human brain, is set to premiere at the Denver Center for the Performing Arts in August 2020. Co-created by Talking Heads frontman and artist David Byrne and writer Mala Gaonkar, the neuroscience-based exhibit is supported by Science Sandbox.

Small audiences — only 16 at a time – will be led through a complex, participatory experience of narrative storytelling. Sensory experiments, developed in consultation with neuroscientists, will be conducted in real time, and the creators promise, “No two audience members will have the same experience.”
