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.
