A Nervous Breakdown
by Cohen New Works Festival, University of Texas

"At the deepest level, the healing instinct and the creative instinct arise from a single source." - Rachel Naomi Remen. Join us for A NERVOUS BREAKDOWN - a documentary dance-theater piece about physicians' experiences of moving through grief, at The Cohen New Works Festival.
Run-time: 50 minutes.
Audiences are advised that this piece contains graphic descriptions scenarios that doctors encounter in the course of their work.
A NERVOUS BREAKDOWN's text is drawn from interviews with practicing physicians, and one hospital chaplain. All names have been changed to respect confidentiality.
