Historical perspectives and staggering statistics collide with personal narrative, projections, 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. Co-written by Wyenn and Guy Zimmerman, 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.

Each performance is followed by a conversation between Wyenn, the audience, and a local diabetes educator.
