The Infamous Hand Injury
Performance artist Andrew Dawson ends the night with the story of a roller derby player who shattered her middle finger in a fall. What followed was months of recovery, which included the insertion of bone from a cadaver to replace her shattered finger, and the retrospectively amusing social dilemma of having one’s middle finger constantly extended. The Articulate Hand is a media-rich, on-stage portrayal of patients whose peculiar impairments—physiological and neurological—provide stunning insights into just how we humans are wired, and how adaptable that wiring may be.
