“every.single.one” is an autobiographical solo performance work that depicts a life altered by a diagnosis of hereditary breast cancer. Throughout 2017, Sampson documented her experience with the cancer, from diagnosis through treatment and recovery - collecting audio, video, photographic material as well as medical records. The documentary material contains the essence of the performance narrative as well as creates an immersive audio-visual space in which the expressive storytelling through movement & spoken word is interwoven. Creating the “every.single.one” project has been a healing process in itself, allowing Sampson to reflect on the cancer experience and in the words of feminist poet Audre Lorde, “examine it, put it into perspective, share it and make use of it.”
Other components of the project include a series of short films that have screened in video art, film, and screendance festivals internationally in 2019 and 2020, as well as a 9-minute experimental dance work, “Deliverer” informed by a classical Indian dance item depicting Kali, the Hindu goddess of transformation.

In August 2018, the Pori Art Museum has acquired a collection of 15 art works by environmental performance and video artist Cherie Sampson (b. 1963 Superior, Wisconsin). The collection includes works created in the arctic nature of Finland since 1998, including both performance documentation and video art based on the performances. The gifted collection was included in the City of Pori Art Collection and a Cherie Sampson archive was created to complement it.
