a performance with comfort breaks

Performed for an open studio event at 

ACAVA studios London July 2022.

A work revealing the increasing physical vulnerability of the older person after a fall, and the difficulty of balancing.

The artist has two broken wrists and is wearing plaster, she walks slowly, trying to balance along a line and

regularly takes breaks to rest against a cushion.


Colourful drawings and a paint brush become a play shield and sword in a series of faux fencing

movements, interacting with audience. Can creativity protect her against injury and decline ?
