Diana Wyenn's "Blood/Sugar"
Saturday, November 21 at 7 p.m. PT
Blood/Sugar uses multimedia effects, original movement, and Wyenn's physical surroundings to create a vivid account of the life-sustaining self-care that diabetes currently demands from one out of every 10 American adults.
CaltechLive! is proud to present creator, director, and performer Diana Wyenn in Blood/Sugar. At the intersection of public health and performance, this solo show focuses on Wyenn's life as a diabetic.
The acclaimed production masterfully weaves sobering statistics, historical perspective, and Shakespearean texts into a personal narrative about living with a chronic illness. Originally conceived for the stage, Blood/Sugar was brilliantly reworked by Wyenn due to her increased risk for contracting COVID-19 .
It is now broadcast live from her home, adding an intensely personal dimension to this can't-miss tour de force. The performance is immediately followed by a conversation among Wyenn, the audience, and local diabetes educators and nutritionists, to be announced.
