Generous Company’s The Beholder’s Share is a theatrical response to the work of Nobel Prize winning neurobiologist Dr. Eric Kandel.  Kandel’s groundbreaking books In Search of Memory: The Emergence of a New Science of the Mind (2007) and The Age of Insight: The Quest to Understand the Unconscious in Art, Mind, and Brain, from Vienna 1900 to the Present (2012) present stunning new portraits of how the human brain creates memories and also how the brain responds to art. Through these two books Kandel has extended an invitation from the field of neurobiology and Generous Company responds to this invitation by crafting a new theatre work in using innovative methods of collaboration.

The Beholder’s Share has been made possible by support from  the William G. Baker, Mr. Memorial Fund, creator of the Baker Artist Awards www.BakerArtistAwards.org
