Reassembled, Slightly Askew is 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 experience Reassembled... individually, listening to the audio via headphones, while lying on a hospital bed. The audio technology makes the sound three-dimensional, causing listeners to feel they are inside Shannon’s head, viscerally experiencing her near-death experience and re-integration into the world with a hidden disability. It is a story of terror, discovery, humour; but above all, hope. Due to the nature of the show, latecomers cannot be admitted.
