Cancer. A word that frighten us to the core. A word that we try our best not to use, despite its unstinting pervasiveness in our lives. When we do use it, we talk of it in terms of battles to be won and struggles to be overcome. We euphemise, and we evade. Rarely do we discuss the realities of cancer, or express our deepest fears. In this touching performance, Cancer Out Loud’s Tissue tackles breast cancer head on, and encourages its audience to do the same.
