With beauty and humor, Margot Greenlee’s Medicine by the Book explores the relationship between movement, imagination and the body’s inherent capacity to heal.

Inspired by her experiences as a resident choreographer in healthcare settings across the greater DC region, the work combines the excitement of performance with the satisfaction of meaningful discussion and creative involvement.

Weaving together compelling scenes from literature and graphic novels with the daily frustrations and long-range aspirations of healthcare professionals, Medicine by the Book reveals the power of our creative minds to heal our ailing bodies.

Designed as a focal point for discourse and creativity, Medicine combines theater, storytelling and movement followed by a facilitated audience-and-cast 'lab' session to immediately propel the work further.

This preview performance will feature faculty members from University of Maryland’s School of Public Health.
