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. 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. 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, Wyenn's increased risk for contracting COVID-19 has compelled her to brilliantly rework the acclaimed production.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 between Wyenn, the audience, and local diabetes educators and nutritionists.
