Dark Days is a performance that evolved from my experience of receiving chemotherapy drugs. During these six months, I was overwhelmed by a dark cloud of despair, depression and extreme tiredness that pushed down and over my body influencing how I moved, slept, and ate. It was darkness heightened by the then misdiagnosis that my cancer had spread knowledge that made fighting this dark despair an arduous and painful process. In Dark Days, I envelop myself under a black sheet and performed movements inspired by the emotional and physical difficulties I encountered when receiving chemotherapy drugs. As my body moves, it generates disparate black shapes that visually represent the trauma experienced by my body during this dark period.
