What if art influences you genetically? The Mechanical Animal Corporation presents The Softening of MAO-A, a bio-theatre experiment. The MAO-A is a gene scientifically proven to influence impulsive violence in humans and macaques. Following rigorous research, Mechanical Animal Corporation presents a sequence of aesthetic stimuli contrived to soften it. For a journey deep into genetic landscapes, come to the Anatomy Theatre Summerhall. In collaboration with Darwin Futures.
