'a richly textured three-dimensional soundscape that affords us a profound and moving sense of what it might be like to have a brain injury — and recover from one.’ — Evening Standard
Reassembled, Slightly Askew is an immersive audio performance about Shannon Yee’s own experience of falling critically ill with a rare brain infection and her journey of rehabilitation with an acquired brain injury.
Audience members experience the show wearing headphones while lying on a hospital bed. Advanced audio technology makes the sound three-dimensional, causing listeners to feel like they are inside Shannon’s head, viscerally experiencing her descent into a coma, brain surgeries, early days in the hospital and re-integration into the world with a hidden disability.
Shannon Yee is a Belfast-based playwright and producer. Reassembled, Slightly Askew is her autobiographical audio-based artwork about her near-death experience and subsequent acquired brain injury, created with an interdisciplinary team of artists, her neurosurgeon and head injury nurse.
"A real-life ordeal, captured by a daring, disorientating artistic collaboration, which works brilliantly on so many levels…It should be available on prescription.” — The Stage
“offers all both humanity and insight, and a completely different theatrical experience.” — The Arts Review
