This is not a show
There are many struggles included in being an artist, we all know that. Being disabled adds its own difficulties. Having a pandemic hit the world surely has some added baggage. The other half of your art duo, coming down with a mystery illness, is quite disruptive. Having all normal life fall out of place, therefore making it impossible to make an art piece based on a comparison of normal life and life as a disabled person isn’t helping.
This is not a show. But it might be a tale, or it might be a stand-up, or it might be the delusional rant of a half comatose chronic patient. It surely is a chaotic jumble of information, sadness, inside humour and absurdity, befitting the world stage today.
