From the award-winning creator of The Price of Everything and How to Occupy an Oil Rig comes a new show from the frontline of an epidemic comes to Arts Centre Washington on Thursday 26th November.
Daniel said: “The contemporary obsession with disease is grisly. Maybe it's because we've nothing real to worry about. But still, it's totally fascinating. And in a world where we're more connected to each other than we've ever been, it's only going to get more pressing.”
Dr Mark Booth, Senior Lecturer in the School of Medicine, Pharmacy and Health at Durham University, commented: “Public awareness of how infections can enter our bodies, easily spread across populations, cause illness and confusion. We all benefit, I think, from the synergistic results of combining art and science. Dan's work is an important contribution to this process as it seeks to shift people's perceptions and increase their knowledge about epidemic disease through strong and effective dramatisation - something that an academic paper alone cannot achieve.”
