You sit there

You Sit There is a celebration of the ambiguities, joys and tensions that exist in the attempt to give and receive care in a society that continues to devalue emotional labour and ignore the ways that it is gendered. Through a weaving of movement, text and sound, Katherine invites you to consider how our communities might be different if we understood care as a physical offering that we are all playing a part in.

Look at all this work to be done. Got to keep on top. Got to do it well. Got to be well. Everything gets mixed up in the glue holding us together… just keep afloat, sweep that floor, mop that shit, brush that off.  
A few nods. A few tender strokes.
