Real Bodies at the Ambassador Theatre
Visitors to Dublin are in for a treat this month as Imagine Exhibitions bring the fascinating Real Bodies exhibition to the Ambassador Theatre from 10 March for a limited engagement. This powerful exhibition explores life by displaying 14 perfectly preserved real human bodies and more than 200 anatomical specimens.
More than a simple display of human specimens, Real Bodies connects audiences to a deeper sense of what it means to be alive. Founded on anatomical, cultural, and emotional narratives, the exhibition transforms the way we view the human body – and reminds us of all the complexity and magic within us that we often take for granted.
The exhibition consists of dramatic and compelling galleries that offer unique perspectives on human anatomy and its importance to world cultures as well as the emotional expression embedded in each of our physiological functions. It pushes boundaries while seamlessly blending art, science, and emotion as a museum of the self.
Visitors can explore these systems within the body, with the exhibition revealing the deep synergy between breathing, hunger, the rhythm of the heart, love, motion, thought, and medicine that makes each person unique.
“While the exhibition moves through the human body using a system by system approach, the exhibition also looks far beyond the physical aspects of these systems,” said President and CEO of Imagine Exhibitions Tom Zaller. “It explores the symbolic and cultural significance that these systems have had from the beginning of time, human evolution through time and questions why we do what we do and how we do it. Whether or not a visitor is spiritual, they’ll emerge from Real Bodies with a sense of greater connection—a connection to the whole of humanity.”
Real Bodies takes visitors on a journey asking them to explore who they are, where they come from and what they choose to do with the life and body they have been given. It digs deeper into the beauty of the body, mind, and soul than any other exhibition of its kind, and invites you to explore the entire human experience from the first breath to the last.
You’re sure to leave this highly original exhibition with a deeper understanding and respect for the human body, one of the world’s greatest natural machines. This is an opportunity not to be missed and you’ll never look at the human body the same way again after a trip to the Ambassador Theatre this month. The exhibition is open from 10am to 7pm daily and tickets are only €14 for adults and €8 for children. There are also special group rates for schools, available Monday to Friday.
