Yes, But Do You Care?2021

Visual artist Marie Brett and chorographer/dance artist Philip Connaughton formed a collaborative, cross-medium art piece exploring how issues of capacity, autonomy and dementia care-giving are raising dilemmas amid Ireland’s new capacity legislation. The work was first shown at The People’s Pavillion at IMMA, August 2020. Both artists have already accomplished strikingly poignant earlier works that express the essence of life’s fragility in relation to dementia and brain disease. Now, through this new collaboration informed by an extensive participatory project with members of the Dementia Carers Campaign Network and contextual advisors in law; they are combining the mediums of dance theatre, film and spoken word to create new artworks.
