Jody Wood: The Cost of Care
The Cost of Care
By Jody Wood
With: Eva Glaser, Georgia Jenkins, Katrina Leung, Doriane Swain, and Cassidy Wingate
The Cost of Care is a live artistic performance exploring the unintended consequences of caretaking on care providers. The piece explores the caregivers perspective and effects of "secondary trauma exposure" on the body and mind. The cast is composed of care providers with first-hand experience of the subject matter, and their performance aims to translate the helplessness, repetition, and limitations of caregiving through movement and repurposed text taken from interviews Wood conducted with various care providers.
This performance follows a series of workshops entitled Choreographing Care. These workshops addressed secondary traumatic stress with social workers at the University Settlement and The Door: A Center of Alternatives. Workshops were facilitated by Jody Wood and led by theater professionals Jan Cohen-Cruz, Rebeca Rad, Margaret Lally, and Rose Ginsberg.
Friday June 23rd at 6:30pm & Saturday June 24th at 5:00pm.
