Sh*t Happens is a multidisciplinary performance exploring the taboos and challenges of living with Inflammatory Bowel Disease, drawing on personal experience of one of the more than 300,000 people affected in the UK.
Clinical space. A toilet seat.
Smile. Suffer. Hide. Repeat.
No one sees the struggle unless it’s visible
The performance deals with the awkward and often embarrassing subject in a light and humorous way that is not deprived of its importance and seriousness. Through the use of technology, autobiographical stories and poetry, the spectator gradually discovers the inconvenient aspects of living with a chronic invisible disease.
From the obvious medical symptoms to what may seem unthinkable or even silly to a‘normal’ person, Sh*t Happens takes you on a journey to a familiar yet unknown world.
