rehearsals for Communicating Medical Materialities, Medical Museion, Copenhagen

In preparation for the workshop we were invited to give at Communicating Medical Materialities conference at the Medical Museion, we developed some of the exercises we had devised with material from our residency in the Neonatal Unit. We experimented applying the cut ups texts from interviews with parents, consultants and midwives to objects, (in this case a medical training baby doll) and furniture, and asked two friends to deliver these lines to each other, moving the objects as necessary and orientating themselves around the furniture, directing their voice and attention to the other person, each using breath as a meter.


One person applied cut up texts to the other person's body and then delivered these lines, using breath as a meter and moving the person's body when necessary.
