Witness in theatre Doctors Fitz and Fitzy performing a unique procedure known as Open Art Surgery. From nothing they will create a patient on paper and attempt to bring it to life.

'Medical Fear' is something that everyone of us humans, past and present, have experienced at some point. We all experience illness and when we are unwell most of us want to get better. This often means doing something to ourselves that is alien, whether surgical, medicinal, or therapeutic. The methods that a sick person will use in their journey from illness to regaining their health can sometimes be scary for the individuals involved (the healers, the patients, the patients' families, etc.).
