Rose Theatre Studio, Kingston

Careful is a work-in-progress dance/theatre performance that puts its audience in the care of five over-stretched nurses. The piece explores the meaning – and limits – of empathy, within and beyond the clinical setting, asking what it means to care for others in an era of individualism.

A post-show discussion will give an insight into the creative process, which involved collaboration with experts in the field of nursing.

Careful is supported by public funds through the Arts Council of England.

Devised on a concept by Alex Mermikides (Senior Lecturer in Drama, Kingston University).
