‘Unchained Brain,’, a live show based on his experiences surrounding his stroke and resulting “broken brain.” The hour-long experimental performance includes spoken word, live music, video elements, animation, medical analysis, and comedy. It is a strange and inspiring story of transformation from mild-mannered chiropractor, to medical mystery, to compulsive artist, and what lies beyond.
QUOTES AND REVIEWS
"Jon’s performance was two parts Lou Reed, three parts Charles Bukowski and five parts Allen Ginsberg. A thought-provoking, engaging night and a fascinating story! We loved having him at Salem State!" - Nick Garratini, Salem State University.
“Never one to do something normal, ‘Unchained Brain,’ is a wholly unique take on the typical artist talk. Sarkin commands the stage with a magnetism that keeps you hooked as the show takes one bizarre turn after another.” - Emile Doucette, Filmmaker
