Preview: Brainstom, Mortal Fools

You say to me… Your brain is broken.
I say to you,
No- my brain is imperfectly perfect; an adult’s brain in training.

Mortal Fools theatre company are presenting Brainstorm- a fast paced, dynamic and physical performance theatre show that is coming to Gateshead on the 11th April .

Brainstorm looks into how young people’s brains work and why they’re designed and have evolved to be imperfectly perfect.

In collaboration with Tyne Valley Youth Theatre, Mortal Fools have worked with young people to create the performance.

Mortal Fools Creative Producer and Brainstorm Director Helen Ferguson said “Through this process we have learned that teenage brains are busy, messy and confusing, but they are also full of fun, new ideas, and the ability to take risks and try things – which is a real benefit to making theatre!”

Inside every young person’s brain, 86 billion neurons connect, crash, collide and clash to cause daily chaotic and exhilarating changes; a hive of constant activity, growing, evolving, changing.

Using personal experiences, it is a part-scripted play exploring teenage brain development and how this translates to real-life experiences. The performance is a thought- provoking piece that challenges you to see young people and their brains in new ways whilst exploring themes around growing up.

Brainstorm is on at Cademon Hall, Gateshead Central Library on Wednesday 11th April at 6pm.

Tickets are £3 per young person (18 years and younger) and £5 per adult.

Tickets can be bought at
