August 12, 2019, Monday - Hippocrates Cafe at MacPhail

Time: 4 PM – 5 PM

Location: MacPhail Center for Music, 501 S 2nd Sreet

Hippocrates Cafe

A live performance that uses actors and musicians to explore healthcare topics through story and song. Each show has a theme (such as aging, cancer, influenza, memory loss) that is explored through poetry, short story, essay, excerpt, letter, historical document and music. The performances intend to breathe life into complex, difficult topics in ways that are thoughtful, respectful and revelatory.

It is not a “prescriptive” show; it does not attempt to tell listeners what to do or how to think or how to live healthier lives. Rather, it allows audience members to be moved by beautiful, poignant words and music that at once educate and entertain—and heal. The tone of the show is warm as opposed to being “coldly” scientific.
