This Funzing Experience:
Humanity has been imagining monsters forever. Some have died in our imaginations. Others still lurk unseen inside our closets and invade our dreams. But, what do Frankenstein’s monster, Count Dracula, and Mike Myers have in common with mental health conditions?

These monsters that come from beyond are metaphors for issues and everyday realities. Is this what makes them so scary? Or, is it simply the slime? Join Neuroscientist & Psychedelic researcher Jonathan Iliff for an eerie evening, uncovering the origins of monsters.

Taking examples from his patients and personal experience and drawing parallels with the films and books that have defined the horror genre over the last 100 years he is here to show you how monsters and madness are inextricably intertwined.

The tortured monsters we fear are imagined out of the tortured humans we love–and Jonathan will show you why.

Venue: Rotate

Doors: 7pm / Talk starts: 7.30pm
