The Scientist: an Evening with John C. Lilly
About The Scientist
Written and performed by Jonathan Torn
Live music written and performed by Freddy Katz
So-fi and the estate of John C. Lilly present a workshop of The Scientist: An Evening with John C. Lilly, a solo performance with music, sound, and images. The Scientist depicts the spiritual and experimental journey of John C. Lilly, one of the most creative and controversial thinkers of the 20th century. His early groundbreaking research on the brain led him to encounter government mind control conspiracies, mind-expanding drugs, sensory deprivation and inner space explorations, and inter-species communication with dolphins, whales, and silicon-based extraterrestrial life forms. Skeptics and believers alike will find food for thought in his remarkable and often harrowing story. Featuring live guitar improvisation by Freddie Katz.
