Reassembled, Slightly Askew

 

RSA Image TEXT LOW.jpg

Reassembled, Slightly Askew (formerly known as Recovery) is a mind-blowing, autobiographical, audio-based artwork that immerses the audience in my experience of descending into coma from a rare brain infection, brain surgeries, and my subsequent rehabilitation with an acquired brain injury. Audiences experience Reassembled… via headphones, while on hospital beds wearing eyemasks. You can find documentation of its development since 2010 here, as well as audience feedback, photos and information about the creative and biomedical team.

Visit the show’s official website for information about booking Reassembled…. for arts venues, festivals, conferences, or medical training.
