Overview

Inspired by the work of Medieval painter Hieronymus Bosch, Give Me a Reason To Live is a stark solo that explores issues of religion, in particular religious art, and the judgement of bodies and quality of life.

Taking the form of a series of tests, of body and of faith, and set to a mesmerizing sound score, the work is a study of empathy; a live memorial to the disabled victims of the Nazi euthanasia program and the current disabled victims of recent 'welfare reform' in the UK.  

Stark [and] brutal with her customary integrity and conviction.
