Osher Center for Integrative Health sponsor of ballet examining patient experience with chronic illness; tickets free to health care providers

In partnership with Osher Center for Integrative Health psychologist Landrew Sevel and Rebekah Hampton Barger, founding artistic director of FALL Dance, are presenting a dance piece exploring lived experience with chronic illness.
The piece, “A Bending of Its Own Kind, 2.0,” is an aerial and contemporary ballet which examines patient experiences with severe scoliosis and chronic illness, based upon qualitative data from patient interviews and artist lived experience. The work seeks to amplify patient voices and facilitate visibility of patient experience, aiming to cultivate increased mutuality and embodied understanding in clinical settings. All performances will be followed with moderated discussion and opportunity to complete online and follow up questionnaires around your experience with the piece.
The Osher Center is offering a special performance and discussion for health care providers on Friday June 3 at 7:30 p.m. 
There will be additional showings open to the public on June 4 (7:30 p.m.) and 5 (2:30 p.m.) with a more general Q&A session following; providers are welcome to attend these as well. 
All performances will be at Nashville School of the Arts.
Tickets are free to health care providers for the June 3 performance with the code “medprof” and available below:
