After more than a decade of living with Type 1 Diabetes, I have turned all my skills as a storyteller toward creating a theatrical response that dispels the lies, mystery, and shame surrounding diabetes in all its forms.
Blood/Sugar, is an evening-length solo performance about diabetes that uses contemporary theater to explore the realities of this growing epidemic and challenge the binary of health and illness. A 20-minute lecture-performance is also available.
Today, 1 in 10 U.S. adults has diabetes and if trends continue the CDC projects that as many as 1 in 3 U.S. adults could have diabetes by the year 2050. The important word is "could" because together we can stop this epidemic.
