Pain, the Brain and a Little Bit of Magic is an empowering performance talk which takes a look inside the brain, exploring how we feel pain, how pain is signalled in the body and how we develop chronic conditions. Based on pioneering research, Pain, the Brain and a Little Bit of Magic offers an optimistic message of how chronic pain may be better understood and treated.
Pain, the Brain and a Little bit of Magic is a performance for chronic pain sufferers and the people who support them, medical professionals and absolutely anybody who wants to know more about what makes the brain tick.
Professor Anthony Jones is a leading neuro-rheumatology researcher at The University of Manchester. He pioneered the use of functional brain imaging to understand the brain mechanisms of chronic pain and is now using his discoveries to develop new therapies.

Pain, the Brain and a Little Bit of Magic was created with poetry written by award-winning poet Ben Mellor. Ben has created a solo show called ‘Kiss It Better’ – a playful yet powerful exploration of the placebo effect - informed by current scientific research, medical history, anthropology, and an intimate personal response to the subject.
