CANCER CANCER CANCER CANCER CANCER brings together 10 years of performance and Live Art projects by Brian Lobel made in response to, well, cancer.
This double-DVD set includes excerpts and full stage performances of the BALL & Other Funny Stories About Cancer trilogy as well as documenting his installations Carpe Minuta Prima and Hold My Hand And We're Halfway There.
Also included are two short films made as part of Fun with Cancer Patients, a project exploring how Live Art methodologies can document the experience of illness.
Unexpected, provocative and irreverent this collection of performances demonstrates that cancer might be more than just a horrifying malignancy - it may just be a life's work.
Brian Lobel creates performances about bodies and how they are watched, policed, poked, prodded, and loved by others. The New York-born, London-based Lobel has shown work internationally in a range of contexts, from medical schools to galleries, cabarets to museums, marketplaces to forests, blending provocative humor with insightful reflection.
