Du sollst den Wald nicht vor dem Hasen loben

Exzellenzcluster NeuroCure, Einstein-Zentrum für Neurowissenschaften, Charité-Universitätsmedizin Berlin, tak Theater Aufbau Kreuzberg | France-Elena Damian, Jochen Müller, Christa Müller, Susanne Wegmann, Anna von Schrottenberg, Miranka Wirth

Eine zum Nachdenken anregende Theateraufführung, die die Auswirkungen von Demenz auf das Individuum und die Familie erforscht, gefolgt von einer Podiumsdiskussion mit dem Produktionsteam und den Neurowissenschaftlerinnen Dr. Miranka Wirth und Dr. Susanne Wegmann.

Der Exzellenzcluster NeuroCure und das Einstein-Zentrum für Neurowissenschaften an der Charité − Universitätsmedizin Berlin laden ein zu einem Theaterabend zum Thema Demenz.

Erst verlegte sie ihre Brille, dann vergaß sie ein paar PIN-Nummern, schließlich 4ndet sie sich in ihrem eigenen Haus nicht mehr zurecht. Dabei will ihre Tochter endlich wissen, wer ihr Vater war. Ein Leben lang hat die Mutter die Antwort auf diese Frage verweigert. Mittlerweile wird die Zeit knapp, ihre Erinnerungen verschwimmen, drohen ganz zu verschwinden. Ein nachdenklich machendes, ein berührendes, dabei auch komisches, traumhaft surreales Stück über das Erinnern, das Verdrängen, das Vergessen, das sich Verlieren und die Frage, was es bedeutet, wenn ein Mensch in die Demenz abdriftet und es keine Gewissheiten mehr gibt.

Es spielen Christa Müller & Anna von Schrottenberg, Regie: France-Elena Damian

Im Anschluss an das Theaterstück beantworten die Neurowissenschaftlerinnen Dr. Miranka Wirth und Dr. Susanne Wegmann Fragen aus dem Publikum zum Thema Demenz in einer gemeinsamen Gesprächsrunde mit dem Produktionsteam.
Moderation: Dr. Jochen Müller

Susanne Wegmann

Deutsches Zentrum für Neurodegenerative Erkrankungen

Neuroscientist

Susanne first studied biotechnology at the TU Berlin before going on to complete her PhD in biophysics at the ETH Zurich. She then went to Boston to research the neurobiology of Alzheimer’s and related diseases at Massachusetts General Hospital and Harvard Medical School. She now heads her own research group at the German Center for Neurodegenerative Diseases (DZNE) here in Berlin while also being affiliated with Charité. Her group works to identify the neurotoxic mechanisms that play a role in neurodegeneration, especially in regards to tau proteins and their (mis)functions. Susanne has found a way to master the difficult translational leap from test tube to human by validating biochemical, biophysical and cytological results from experiments on postmortem human brain tissue. Projects within Susanne’s research group are thus concerned with protein phase separation and aggregation, and with cytotoxicity in neurodegeneration.
