Profs and Pints presents: “The Science of Inspiration,” a look at how the brain creates, with Dr. Daniel Z. Lieberman, professor of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences at George Washington University and co-author of The Molecule of More.
Creative ideas seem to come out of nowhere, often popping into our heads, fully formed, with no apparent work being done on our part. Sometimes creative ideas solve simple problems, other times they revolutionize an industry. Are they divine inspiration? The influence of a friendly muse? Or are they manufactured by hidden circuits within the brain that we’re ordinarily unaware of?
Come learn what neuroscience tells us about the creative process from Dr. Lieberman, who previously gave fantastic Profs and Pints talks on brain chemistry and politics based on his book The Molecule of More: How a Single Chemical in Your Brain Drives Love, Sex, and Creativity―and Will Determine the Fate of the Human Race.
He will review five strategies that activate the creative parts of the brain, with illustrations from ancient history and modern life.
Our modern economy is no longer based on natural resources or physical labor. It’s based on ideas. Understanding creativity—what it is, where it comes from, and how to stimulate it—gives us the key to understanding progress in the 21st century.
Whether the next creative task in front of you involves coming up with a strategic plan, writing a book, or simply helping build a snowman, you’ll leave this talk with a much better understanding of how your brain will rise to the challenge. You might even find yourself better at such tasks than you had been before. (Advance tickets: $12. Doors: $15, save $2 with a student ID. Listed time is for doors. Talk starts 30 minutes later. Please allow yourself time to place any orders and get seated and settled in.)

Cuban-American songstress Kat Dahlia created a lane for herself when she popped on the scene a few years back with hit singles “Gangsta” and “I Think I’m In Love,” which collectively amassed 200 million plays. Kat shares her latest offering after a 2-year hiatus – a bilingual project pulling from her Latin roots fused with urban Pop rhythms.

“A whirlwind of exhilaration… is any other ballet company as fit and athletic as this one?”—The Washington Post
with the Kennedy Center Opera House Orchestra
The company’s powerhouse dancers continue to enrich an ever-expanding repertory brimming with works by ballet legends and today’s most exciting innovators.
Balanchine, Wheeldon, and Liang (Mar. 31 and Apr. 1 & 5)
This program includes two works by George Balanchine: Haieff Divertimento combines blues and American dance idioms with modern concert dance and classic ballet, while Stravinsky Violin Concerto peels away outer layers of symmetry to reveal two ingenious pas de deux. In Christopher Wheeldon’s Liturgy, set to music by Arvo Pärt, two dancers separate and re-connect with ever-increasing intensity. The company also brings Edward Liang’s new Lineage, which abstracts and deconstructs Georgian folk dance with choreographic patterning set to the vibrant Apollo by English composer Oliver Davis.
Peck, Cunningham, and Balanchine/Robbins (Apr. 2–4)
Justin Peck’s entrancing Principia, set to a score for full orchestra, is a collaboration with Oscar®-nominated composer Sufjan Stevens. For the centennial of Merce Cunningham, the company performs Summerspace with music by Morton Feldman; the late choreographer envisioned movement “like the passage of birds, stopping for moments on the ground and then going on.” Balanchine and Jerome Robbins’s ever-popular masterpiece Firebird, set to Stravinsky’s score, illustrates the fantastical Russian fairy tale.
