In late 2004, Vivian Chong's life was changed forever when a rare skin disease, TEN (Toxic Epiderman Necrolysis), left her with scar tissue that blinded her. In the wake of this traumatising experience, Chong was forced to learn a new way of being in the world. She survived and thrived, forging a new identity and discovering how to express herself creatively. In Dancing After TEN, Chong teams up with cartoonist Georgia Webber - whose other graphic novel eloquently depicts her own struggles with disability - to tell her journey out of the darkness and into the spotlight. This extraordinary journey, rendered with rare sensitivity and rawness, takes her from the depths of despair to the realm of possibility, as she realises her artistic vision in a variety of expressions - including singing, stand-up, drumming, running, and dance. Releasing simultaneously with the Toronto debut of Chong's dance-theater production 'dancing with the universe', this graphic novel is an inspirational tale and a powerful work of graphic medicine.
