Perfect stranger? The idea of six degrees of separation suggests that that all people are connected to each other through a chain of six or fewer “friend of a friend” relationships. The concept gained popularity in John Guare’s 1990 play, Six Degrees of Separation, in which a wealthy couple helps a charming stranger who claims to be friends with one of their children.
The award-winning play is being revived on Broadway this April. As part of Brainwave, Guare joins psychologist Lisa Feldman Barrett to mark the publication of her new book How Emotions are Made: The Secret Life of the Brain in order to explore the emotional patterns that lead to misperception and deception.
A book signing featuring both speakers will take place after the program.Buy tickets/get more info now
