An experiential autobiographical, audio-based artwork about the experience of falling critically ill with a rare brain infection and a 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
"A real-life ordeal, captured by a daring, disorientating artistic collaboration, which works brilliantly on so many levels...It should be available on prescription.”
