“Accomplishes what no billboard or pamphlet ever could."
“A hurricane of a performance!”
“She's literally performing not only her own illness, but the disease itself, and it's breathtaking.”
—Quotes from Audience Members

Historical perspectives and staggering statistics collide with personal narrative, live-feed video, Shakespeare, and original movement to give embodied expression to the complexities of living with a chronic illness. Creator Diana Wyenn, who has Type 1 diabetes, places her story and body at the center of the work, as both a carrier of disease and a vehicle for theatrical transmission. Richly researched, Blood/Sugar challenges the binary of health and illness to create a vivid account of the life-sustaining self-care that diabetes demands of more than 422 million people worldwide.
