David Byrne and Mala Gaonkar’s Theater of the Mind Extends Due to Popular Demand

The Denver Center for the Performing Arts (DCPA) Off-Center is excited to announce that due to popular demand, Theater of the Mind co-created by Academy, Grammy and Tony Award-winning artist David Byrne and writer Mala Gaonkar will extend through January 22 in Denver. 

Critics are raving about Theater of the Mind with WNYC’s Radiolab calling Theater of the Mind “a brainy funhouse,” City Cast Denver declared it the “cultural event of the year” and Thrillist saying “the show will leave you exhilarated and existential.”  Audiences cannot stop talking about the experience saying it is “revolutionary” and “easily one of the most amazing art experiences of my life.” 

Theater of the Mind takes place in a 15,000-square-foot historic warehouse within the adaptive reuse campus of York Street Yards in Denver’s Clayton neighborhood. The production takes audience members through an immersive journey of self-reflection, discovery, and imagination, inspired by, and grounded in neuroscience. Audiences explore how they perceive the world through sensory experiments that reveal the inner mysteries of the brain. 

“Extending this show is a dream come true, part two,” said Co-creator David Byrne. “Not only am I happy with the show, but it seems that audiences like it too! I couldn’t ask for a better holiday present.” 

Co-creator David Byrne recently released a short piece of new music to coincide with the production. Attendees and fans of the artist can stream the newly released song on the website. For more information and tickets for the extended run of Theater of the Mind, visit theateroftheminddenver.com
