- 24/09 – 11/12/22
Montjuïc. Espai Lliure
This season, the Lliure and the Universitat Oberta de Catalunya (UOC) continue with the study on the benefits of theater in people with neurodegenerative diseases.
Both institutions explore the confluences between health and culture through pioneering research in Catalonia. The study, coordinated by the doctor and professor Salvador Macip, is carried out in collaboration with the Hospital de la Santa Creu i Sant Pau. Patients are monitored with assessments before and after the study activities (attending theatrical shows, creative processes and a training activity around the performing arts). The first results of the study will be released and shared by the end of 2022.
The Teatre per prescripció facultativa is specified in the general practitioner’s prescription for patients with different diagnoses to attend various theatre functions. The objective of this study in Season 22/23 is to investigate the effectiveness of an intervention based on performing arts activities for cognitive deficits and emotional alterations in people with parkinson’s. The program includes the following activities: the viewing of five shows, four training sessions, a guided tour of the Teatre Lliure and a closing and return activity with project participants.
