Be Gentle With Me (work in progress)
WE ARE SORRY TO SAY THAT THIS EVENT HAS BEEN CANCELLED.
"I had days where I was in less pain and days when I was in more pain. But I always had pain. Every single day of those eighteen years."
Be Gentle With Me is about notions of illness. It is about being sick and being well, about private experience and public exposure, about feeling pain and watching it.
The piece explores illness that is long term or sudden, critical or everyday, as well as ideas around genetics and hereditariness, and how we communicate and share or don't share our experiences of ill health.
It is a duet for a 31-year-old woman and a 63-year-old man, a provocative, tender, funny and intimate show about our bodies as changing, fluctuating things.
This is an in-development showing.
