Scores for Caregiving

Workshop by Alecia Neo, Frank M, Carol Ee

What does the weight of caregiving look like? Whose weight do we bear? Can we share it? Scores for Caregiving offers a movement workshop co-facilitated by artist Alecia Neo and primary caregivers Frank M and Carol Ee from the project Between Earth and Sky (2018). Workshop participants will gain insights into the complexity of performing care labour through listening to each caregiver’s lived experiences and learning the body movements choreographed by each caregiver. Through guided creative prompts, each participant will be invited to map out the caregiving roles and relationships that they are involved in as well as learn new ways to engage individuals and communities through movement.

** Note to participants: Dress in comfortable clothes for ease of movement. The workshop will be conducted in a third-floor studio, which is only accessible by stairs.
