THE CURIOUS INCIDENT OF THE DOG Discover Aspergers' beautiful mathematical brain

  • Mar 4, 2013 · 7:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

Awarded by Whitbread and the Guardian, this clever and fascinating play will introduce us to the beautiful mind of Autistic people.

I can warmly recommend the related book The Curious Incident of the Dog in The Night Time..

If you know some people who are on the autistic spectrum, this is a mind-blowing insight on how they think and into the completely different way they relate to the universe around!

Asperger syndrome is quite common, it is also known as "the geek syndrome" as many Aspies have a mathematical and systemizing perception of the world and tend to be quite aloof in social situations.

I ve been fascinated by Aspergers and autism since years and they can be incredibly loyal and imaginative friends if you are willing to help them communicating and overcoming the autism barriers. They tend to interpret the world by decoding its invisible patterns and making sense of its underlying symmetrical and mathematical structure, rather than understanding the world intuitively or by feelings and emotions. Asperger are also called "the hyper-male" brain as opposed to the "female model" which is guided by emotions rather than rules.

SOME IDEAS FOR DISCUSSION (and for potential controversy (-: ),

Why are the best engineers and inventors male?

Is there a strong natural predisposition in the male brain, is there an "irresistible attraction" to numbers, to "systemizing" meaning decrypting the rules behind phenomena?

Are women naturally selected to nurture and have a predominant emotional approach to life..?

Did you know that it s believed Albert Einstein and Isaac Newton both had Asperger syndrome?

So, the great news is that there are still a couple of tickets at £12 which is an unbelievable price for this worldwide acclaimed play! The last show at the National Theatre recently sold out in few days (Ask Marion :)

If £12 sells out, the next price slot is £24.. so reserve your seat now :) (My seat is E8)

    Fantastic piece of theatre. It could have been directed by Danny Boyle, with all that creativity.. Thanks for organising Penny!

    I really liked mixing the musical genre and classic theatre, with some great scenography and light and sound effects. There were a lot of subtle underlying themes, like the critic of London's very dehumanized lifestyle (the guy in his clean suit wouldn't jump on the tracks to save the kid).. Five stars to the puppy dog! Thanks guys for your cheerful attendance!
