UnRavelled in Conversation: Creativity, Love & Dementia

Saturday, June 26, 2021 - 5:00 pm to 6:00 pm | Cost: FREE


The Global Brain Health Institute (GBHI) is presenting a live, online public event titled “UnRavelled in Conversation: Creativity, Love & Dementia” on Saturday, June 26 at 5 p.m. PT / 8 p.m. ET**. The panel discussion, which features NYPD Blue and Deadwood creator David Milch, who is currently living with a diagnosis of Alzheimer’s disease, is offered as an adjunct to the virtual premiere of UnRavelled, a new drama about creativity and the mysteries of dementia currently streaming through June 30. June is Alzheimer’s and Brain Awareness Month.

Written by Jake Broder and directed by Nike Doukas, UnRavelled is a critically acclaimed new drama that explores the fascinating connection between modern-day painter Anne Adams and early 20th century composer Maurice Ravel, both of whom experienced intense periods of virtuosic creativity while in the early stages of primary progressive aphasia, a form of frontotemporal dementia.

Guests are encouraged to watch the 90-minute play (available at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ud9CAGZN37M) in advance of the live event.

PANELISTS
• David Milch, creator of TV’s NYPD Blue and Deadwood, who is currently living with a diagnosis of Alzheimer’s.
• Bruce Miller, co-director of the Global Brain Health Institute at the UCSF Memory and Aging Center and Trinity College Dublin
• Lucy Davenport, actor and star of the play, UnRavelled
• Jake Broder, playwright, UnRavelled
• Moderator: Stefanie Piña-Escudero, geriatrician and Atlantic Fellow for Equity in Brain Health
