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.
Run time: 70 minutes
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.
It runs 70 minutes, and will be immediately followed by a live, post-event audience Q&A with creator Diana Wyenn and nutrition and diabetes experts Julie Ching, MS, RDN, CDCES and Matthew Ruscigno, MPH, RD.
Blood/Sugar is supported in part by the California Arts Council, a state agency, and the National Arts and Disability Center at the University of California Los Angeles.
