Reassembled, Slightly Askew

Performances at 12.30pm, 3pm, 5.30pm (7pm on Thursday 27th only)
Duration: 90 mins
Age: 16+
Please note: latecomers cannot be admitted.

Presented by Looping The Loop.

An autobiographical, audio-based artwork 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.

Yee’s attempts to make sense of what is happening to her reel from the absurd (at one point she thinks the world doesn’t need donkey sanctuaries when it has Cheryl Cole) to the emotional (the sound of a baby crying seems as if the entire world is weeping). When a doctor asks her if she knows where she is, I had to suppress the urge to shout: “In hell”★★★★ The Guardian

With a coffin full of sympathy snacks, Jack Rooke and his 85-year old Nan Sicely invite you to the happiest town in Britain, where Dad’s dead and the only thing to eat is lasagne.
