Body Worlds Vital
Proudly presented by Discovery, BODY WORLDS Vital is an all-new, unique exhibition celebrating the wonder, resilience and fragility of the human body. Visitors will get a detailed look at the human body and its keenly intelligent design, explore how it functions, and see what happens when disease strikes. Due to popular demand, the BODY WORLDS Vital Cape Town exhibition is extending to Sunday, 27 November 2016 at the V&A Waterfront.
This is the first time “Vital” – one of 11 different BODY WORLDS exhibitions seen by more than 40 million people worldwide – is on show in South Africa. As an organisation that continually looks for new ways to help people live healthier lives, we believe Dr Gunther von Hagens’ groundbreaking preservation process gives people a real-life opportunity to experience the wonder of the human body. A specific focus for Discovery is to give people relevant tools and support to take care of their health and wellness at every stage of their lives, and through preventive medicine and innovative lifestyle interventions, our aim is to help prevent the onset and manage health conditions affected by lifestyle choices.
The trailblazing, international BODY WORLDS series has been seen by more than 40 million people in over 100 cities across the world. Now BODY WORLDS returns to South Africa but with a new, more advanced presentation, a new theme, and much more to learn and experience.
