Peter Selwyn, a palliative doctor at Montefiore and choreographer Tamar Rogoff teamed up recently to create ‘Grand Rounds,’ a show where real doctors, patients and professional artists explore rituals around death and help patients find a new appreciation for their bodies. In Grand Rounds, Rogoff casts an ensemble of differently-abled performers to represent family. Performances continue to Sunday, May 14 at La MaMa Theatre on 66 E. 4th Street in Manhattan. Performances run Wednesday through Saturday at 7 p.m. and Sunday at 4 p.m.
