with Various Talkback Guests from UCSF’s Memory & Aging Center
Wednesday at 7:30pm | San Francisco
Monologuist Josh Kornbluth is currently doing a year-long residency as a Scholar at the Global Brain Health Institute, which is a collaboration between the Memory and Aging Center at UCSF and Trinity College, Dublin, Ireland. He’ll be developing a solo show based one what he learns and experiences there — with a focus on dementia. He’s spending time with people who have dementia (or Mild Cognitive Impairment) and their caregivers, along with researchers, nurses, social workers, and others involved in investigating the causes of, and potential cures for, all kinds of dementia, including Alzheimer’s Disease.
In these improvs, Josh will begin to share stories from what he likes to call the “Brain Place” — along with his recollections of a loved one who had Alzheimer’s. After each improv, Josh will be joined by one or more brain experts from UCSF, who will chat with Josh and answer audience questions.
Josh Kornbluth has been creating and performing autobiographical monologues — including several at The Marsh — since 1989. He is currently working on a solo show based on his experiences as an artist-in-residence and volunteer at the Zen Hospice Project in San Francisco. For two years he hosted an interview program on KQED-TV, conveniently titled The Josh Kornbluth Show. His latest feature film is Love & Taxes, a collaboration with his brother Jacob. For all of this year, Josh is in residence as a Scholar at the Global Brain Health Institute at UCSF.
