Monday-Friday 10 a.m. - 4 p.m., Thrust Theatre Building, Room 125

For most of history, the study of sleep and dreaming has been relegated to psychology, philosophy and literature. Only in the last few decades have scientists begun to investigate the whys and wherefores of sleep. A UofL collaboration with Actors Theatre of Louisville, ZFX Flying Effects, Lincoln Performing Arts School and Jefferson County Public Schools, “Sleep Rock Thy Brain” harnesses the rich movement vocabulary of flight to explore the mysteries and complexities of the sleeping brain. The play will be 8 p.m. April 10-14, plus a 3 p.m. matinee April 14, at Lincoln Elementary Performing Arts School, 930 E. Main St
