Cambridge Rare Disease Network - UnRavelled: Virtual Screening and Live Seminar 1
12 / 100
Art, music and science intersect in UnRavelled, a new drama by award-winning, Los Angeles-based playwright Jake Broder.

About this Event

The Global Brain Health Institute presents the virtual premiere of UnRavelled, a new play about love, art and who we are on the most profound level.

Based on true events and incorporating research and interviews conducted by Broder as a Hellman Visiting Artist at UCSF’s Memory and Aging Center, UnRavelled explores the fascinating connection between the work of Canadian painter Anne Adams (1940–2007) and French composer Maurice Ravel (1875–1937), both of whom suffered from the same rare brain disease.

These two special screenings of UnRavelled are followed immediately by live seminars with experts in the field, including Memory and Aging Center director and GBHI co-director Dr. Bruce Miller, who diagnosed Adams:

  • Thu., February 254 – 6 p.m. PST / 7 – 9 p.m. EST
  • Wed., March 3, 9 – 11 a.m. PST / 12 – 2 p.m. EST / 5 – 7 p.m. GMT


The play begins streaming Thursday, Feb. 25 at 4 p.m. PT / 7 p.m. ET and remains available on demand at UnRavelledPlay.com through March 31.
