Paint The Town Festival presents: Reassembled Slightly Askew by Shannon Yee
An autobiographical, audio-based artwork about Shannons 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 Shannons 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.
A real-life ordeal, captured by a daring, disorientating artistic collaboration, which works brilliantly on so many levels. It should be available on prescription.
- 5 stars The Stage
This story hers becomes mine because she puts it into my head so directly. She rebuilds herself from nothing and then shares the fall and rise with me alone.
