Journey to the Centre of the Brain tells the story of a 9 year old boy on the night before the BIG test. He is anxious and aware that he has not prepared. Unable to sleep he finds himself falling inside his own brain and begins a journey through his Neo Cortex, Hippocampus and Cerebellum to discover exactly how he learns and why he is feeling so anxious.

We emulate the workings of a human brain in the environment of the school hall, discovering its potential, and finding out what makes it tick. The show incorporates actors, children, design, puppetry, music and above all… imagination!

The children thoroughly enjoyed this performance. They were absolutely captivated. The play reinforced many key areas of learning, including ‘evolution’ from the new curriculum. It was challenging subject matter made explicit. The children were all engaged, at their level of understanding. And it’s not just the children, I’ve learnt a lot about my brain today.
