The TPA Presents: HIV, The Three Epidemics
With Allison Navis, Directed by Sarah Hughes
AIDS abruptly appeared in 1981 and quickly created a world of fear, destroying countless lives and exposing the deadly power of public stigma along the way. Almost four decades later, much has changed, and yet much work still remains to be done. Three Epidemics uses a mix of science and theatrical multimedia to explore the history of HIV and assess how it evolved from a deadly infection to a chronic disease, how lack of access to healthcare and mistaken public perception may be helping the disease spread, and how we can use tools of advocacy and awareness to win the fight against AIDS.
The Talks Progress Administration is a mad science experiment on stage – we’re pairing academic lecturers with theater directors to see what they’ll make together. The TPA is combining intellectual entertainment, creative discourse, and interactive storytelling like you’ve never seen before.
What would happen if Bill Nye got cast in Sleep No More, if Jane Goodall sat down for tea with Brecht, or if Stephen Hawking wrote a new Hamilton-inspired rock opera? We don’t know, but we sure as hell can’t wait to find out.
The TPA is a collaboration between The Story Collider and Caveat, and is supported by Science Sandbox, a Simons Foundation initiative dedicated to engaging everyone with the process of science.
