Playing Doctors

Theatre and medicine aim to represent and care for the human. Dr Alex Mermikides discusses projects uniting performance and medicine.


Theatre tells human-scale stories, using human beings as its artistic medium. Medicine is the humane application of human ingenuity to the human condition – and yet being under medical care can be a de-humanizing experience. So, can theatre help to ‘humanize’ medicine?

In this performance-lecture, Dr Alex Mermikides shares her experiences of creating theatre with and for medical professionals and their patients – and argues that the relationship between theatre and medicine can be more complex than this question implies.

This event is part of the Being Human festival of the humanities (www.beinghumanfestival.org).
