Reassembled, Slightly Askew
Thu, April 13, 2017, 6:00 PM – 7:00 PM BST
An autobiographical, audio-based work about Shannon’s experience of falling critically ill with a rare brain infection and her journey of rehabilitation with an acquired brain injury. Audience members (6 per show) experience Reassembled, Slightly Askew individually, listening to the audio via headphones while lying on hospital beds. The audio technology makes the sound three-dimensional, causing listeners to feel they are inside Shannon’s head, viscerally experiencing her descent into coma, brain surgeries, early days in the hospital and reintegration into the world with a hidden disability. A story of terror, discovery, humour, but above all, hope.
★★★★The Arts Review - ‘’offers both humanity and insight, and a completely different theatrical experience’’
★★★★Time Out - “A quietly devastating example of uncategorisable art at its best.”
