Breathe is the story of one man’s journey to live beyond the odds. Brennen Reeves just wanted to be normal. The only problem: the fatal lung disease, cystic fibrosis. The only solution: a double lung transplant. Hilarious and heartbreaking, this solo show presented by UF’s College of the Arts and College of Public Health and Health Professions will leave audiences moved and inspired. Co-created with David Lee Nelson, Breathe is written and performed by Reeves, a 2014 graduate of the College of Charleston.
A reception with the artists will follow the Saturday evening performance, and a panel discussion will be held following Sunday’s show. Jill Sonke, director of UF’s Center for Arts in Medicine, will moderate the panel discussion featuring Reeves and Nelson along with Dr. Mutasim Abu-Hasan of UF's Department of Pediatrics in the College of Medicine and Dr. David Fedele of UF's Department of Clinical and Health Psychology in the College of Public Health and Health Professions.
