Francesca Cavello

There She Lies Motionless

2016



There She Lies Motionless by Francesca Cavello & Hamish MacPherson is an exercise in compassion, vulnerability and power, sitting somewhere between, workshop, performance and the every day practice of giving and receiving care. Loosely based on the work and life of Caroline Thomas, a woman who has simulated illnesses for over 30 years as a part of her volunteering commitment to the Casualties Union , There she Lies, Motionless is a setting for mutual, physical interaction where the action of caring for, with and about someone becomes choreography and the grammar for the imagination of unforeseen solutions.

Shown at Manifesta 11, Zurich (2016).
