Can You Kick it?

Is dance a manifestation of madness or a valuable therapeutic tool? Discover how dance was used in Europe's 19th-century asylums and delve into the psychiatric history of Moulin Rouge's most famous dancer, Jane Avril. Were her uncontrollable leg movements a symptom of hysteria or a sign of talent?

Explore how dance is being used today as therapy to rehabilitate movement. Find out how dance can be used to lift morale and provide lasting relief from physical difficulties.

Join a discussion between a scientist, a curator and a historian of hysteria, and learn to high kick with can-can performer Leila Othieno.
