Mark Storor: The Barometer of My Heart discussion
3-4.30pm & 7-8.30pm.
40% of men over 40 will experience erectile dysfunction during their lives. This condition is an indicator of cardiovascular disease, coronary artery disease and stroke. It is also the unspoken root of anxiety, stress and depression.
Since May 2014 Mark Storor has attended 64 private consultations with men attending erectile dysfunction clinics with Leighton Seal, a consultant at St George’s Hospital. At 8am the following day, the two of them would meet again to reflect on the consultations from their different perspectives.
Outside the medical environment, Mark has developed and led creative workshops with men in religious, military, sports and corporate settings, and has undertaken further research with some of the men attending the clinics. In doing so, he has carved out a distinctive space for men to talk freely.
This event offers insights into a dynamic collaboration in which endocrinologist, artist and a wide network of men explore new ways to communicate about the taboo of erectile dysfunction and its social and medical implications.
During the presentation the audience will be asked to witness and respond to a series of short performances and discussions that have developed as part of this two-year collaborative process, ahead of the full public performances in September 2015.
