What happens in the body and the mind of a young man with a deadly disease? This powerful performance portrays the extreme bodily experience of someone going through the most aggressive cancer treatment: a stem cell transplant.
Bloodlines was created by Chimera, a team of artists, medics and researchers, including a leukaemia survivor and his transplant donor. The makers will reflect on the project in a post-show discussion that covers cancer, the arts and medical science, and the social value of research.
