A visually arresting and comically haunting look at the ramifications of brain surgery, and how one woman finds her way in a reality that is forever different. BRAIN STORM takes you into the operating theatre, to dissect the question; are our brains magic, machines – or both? The work of famous Canadian neurosurgeon Dr. Wilder Penfield, the writings of the director's spiritual medium grandmother, and a brain injury in her own family come together in this unique piece of physical theatre.
