In this performance I recreated the day I regained the ability to walk from high dose chemotherapy while inpatient at Chicago Northwestern Memorial Hospital. I awoke after three days of high dose methotrexate, to find I could move my limbs again. I got up from my bed, grabbed the IV pole I was attached to and skipped along the stem cell transplant floor. I rejoiced at being able to move again, although I was still disabled and under biopower biomedical infrastructure and regime.
