'A Space in Between' is a performance installation conceived and created by theatre maker Lori Delaney. The piece uses physical, photographic and media documentation to represent ‘biographical disruption’ through the lived experience of breast cancer treatment. It explores the possibility of repairing breast cancer narratives - and the potentially unhelpful and pervasive survivor narrative - through performance art. Following the premiere of the filmed installation, Lori will lead a discussion and audience Q&A with Claire Collison and Dr Emily Underwood-Lee, established practitioners and thinkers on the intersection of women's health, representation and storytelling. Both Claire and Emily have explored cancer narratives in their work and will discuss examples of their practice here.
