Displacing suggests moving from a certain place, generally considered as usual, and familiar, to an elsewhere that is perceived as alien, different, unknown. What is it that becomes displaced in someone’s life after receiving a cancer diagnosis? When the body suddenly becomes uninhabitable, where does the exiled occupier of this body go? Through auto-ethnographic analysis and the images collected over ten years of oncological treatments and dance performances, this video essay displays how processes of healing can be set in motion by practices of displacement, physical explorations and unexpected journeys. Video essay: 9 minutes.
