An invitation to a blind date – with the most important partners: our body and our mind. We will rendezvous at Schinkel’s Rotunda in the Altes Museum, under the gaze of Asclepius, the great physician of antiquity. There, we will be welcomed and guided by music – to meet the organism we are, complete with sophisticated self-regulatory mechanisms uniting “body and mind,” spirit, physicality, and soul.
How much personal and societal potential lies in not defining health ex negativo, but rather understanding it as a “miracle work” of sophisticated systems that interact to achieve balance and healing? In the Schinkel Rotunda in the Altes Museum, the most up-to-date knowledge, the holistic approach of historical chambers of wonder, and music from Asia and Europe combine to create a new format. The neuroscientist, physician and best-selling author Prof. Tobias Esch, the anthropologist Dr. Mona Schrempf, the Sheng virtuoso Wu Wei and the multi-instrumentalist Niko Meinhold will enter into a dialogue about body and mind, music and world view.
Concept and moderation: Bernhard Glocksin, Neuköllner Oper.

Mona Schrempf studied Ethnology, Indian Art History and Ancient American Studies at FU Berlin. She completed her PhD on the local history, social organization, and performance of Tibetan ritual mask dances in a religious community of Bonpo in Amdo, Sichuan Province, China. Her postdoctoral ethnographic research, in addition to topics of ritual performance, addresses notions and everyday practices of health and illness, Tibetan medical practices, and ritual healing in the Himalayas and Tibet in the context of national health systems and socio-political as well as cultural transformation processes. Her research primarily concerns Tibetan or culturally Tibetan-influenced communities in China (TAR, Sichuan and Qinghai provinces) and in the Himalayan borderlands of India and Bhutan, exiled Tibetan communities in German-speaking Europe, and transnational Tibetan medical practice, among others, as part of European complementary medicine in a comparison of China and Europe.Close
