Reassembled, Slightly Askew: a show about acquired brain injury

Wigan Arts Festival
The Old Courts, Gerrard Winstanley House Crawford Street Wigan, WN1 1NA

An autobiographical, audio-based artwork about Shannon Yee'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. ★★★★The Arts Review - ‘’offers both humanity and insight, and a completely different theatrical experience’’
★★★★Time Out - “A quietly devastating example of uncategorisable art at its best.”   Performances Thursday 13 April - 12.00pm, 6.oopm and 8.00pm Friday 14 April - 12.00pm, 6.00pm and 8.00pm Saturday 15 April - 12.00pm, 6.00pm and 8.00pm Buy tickets here
