In Kind

In-Kind was a mobile one-woman performance for an audience of one in an old military ambulance. It was made with and for carers building on the collaborative research process of Care Full. During a bitterly cold February the vehicle toured the borough taking the voice of the hidden carer out into public space. Each audience member encountered a series of actions performed with an inflatable zimmerframe, a stuffed canary, party balloons, pill boxes, stacks of chaotic paperwork, a musical saw and much desperate clambering, depicting the stress, strains and frustrations of the carer's life.
