Dance4 would like to invite carers, care professionals, people working in health and care settings and those interested in ideas around care to watch Katherine Hall’s performance of You Sit There.

Looks with satisfaction, gusts of affirmation. Awkward stumbling, attempting the hero, just getting there. Nodding in agreement, nodding in sympathy, nodding in hopefulness, nodding in assurance, nodding in distress. Being nodded. Pretending not to be nodded. Taking a moment. Giving a hand. Working with invisible tasks and weight and bodies. It takes time. But it’s fine, it’s ok. We can share the weight.

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 such labour.

Through time, through extrapolation, a splayed hand, guiding, Katherine invites you to think about care as a physical offering that we are all playing a part in.

Suitable for age 16+
