Noémie Soula presents her art research project ‘Handle (me) with care’ at the forthcoming SDEA Theatre Arts Conference in May. The project explores and re-imagines the relationship between bedridden patients and their caregivers during dressing rituals.
The presentation will focus on how the use of art-based methods – such as dance and textile creations – in this inquiry leads to a better understanding of this highly choreographic care. It will also emphasize how creative practices can infiltrate and challenge other disciplines and research ground to generate new knowledge.
The SDEA Theatre Arts Conference 2021 is organised by Singapore Drama Educators Association (SDEA). SDEA is a not-for-profit organisation set up by artists and drama educators which advocates for the practice and value of drama and theatre in performance, education and community.
The conference is attended by performance, drama, theatre artists and educators. This year’s event is fully online and is themed Creative Disruption: Exploring New Ground. Join from 22 -30 May 2021 to see Noemi’s work!
