A major collaboration with 21st Century Museum for Contemporary Art and Hanaume Cancer Support Centre, this 3-day installation featured over 30 cancer patients, medical professionals, support workers and bereaved family members creating one-to-one performances with galleries. Developed over nearly two years with a team of over 50 participants, the work was our attempt to respond to the silence around illness and the difficulty of having challenging conversations, employing methodologies from both intimate and one-to-one performances and patient focus groups. After a short introduction by Brian (in Japanese, in which he is not nearly fluent), audience members were paired with a Member and taken into the theatre or around the Museum and taken through a benri (a tool of convenience) for conversations about cancer.
