What does being normal mean to you? What masks do you wear to fit into society? This workshop delves into the complex relationship between care, performance, normalcy and societal expectations through creative movement and collective conversations. Throughout history, artists with disabilities have challenged perceived social norms, using their art to redefine normalcy and highlight a diverse range of human experiences.

Workshop participants will gain insights into how looking through the lens of disabled persons can help us to reimagine our worlds, negotiate space and foster a more inclusive culture. As participants observe conversations and body movements choreographed by the artists, they will also be led to reflect on and discuss self-identity and care in relation to kin and community.

This workshop is part of Care Index, an ongoing artistic research project that seeks to understand care through movement and collaborative practices.
