The Research Graduate School (Arts) and Drama at Ulster University are delighted to present Reassembled, Slightly Askew to ISSTA attendees.

Reassembled… is a mind-blowing autobiographical, audio-based performance about writer Shannon Sickels’ experience of falling critically ill with a rare brain infection, her journey through rehabilitation and living with an acquired brain injury. Binaural audio techniques

will allow you to experience Sickels’ descent into coma, her brain surgeries, her early days of rehabilitation in hospital and her re-integration into the world with a hidden disability.
