The Sick Of The Fringe

Care & Destruction

Dates: Fri 5 & Sat 6 Apr

Amidst a time of great and nerve-wracking societal change, The Sick of the Fringe present their second London programme: Care & Destruction.

A weekend of performance and conversation dedicated to some of the most exciting and pressing voices looking at health and social justice. New artistic commissions, unique collaborations and fearless conversations will uncover the stories we are not seeing, the stories we are avoiding, the stories we don't yet have the language to tell. Unhealthy care and necessary destruction? Rip it up, air the room, start again.

The Sick of the Fringe originally looked at the body as autonomous. In 2019, we are now looking at it in dialogue with a world in pain, societal injustice and systems of oppression. Care & Destruction takes a broad reaching theme and through this programme has invited artists to look at unexpected ways of challenging and considering the negatives of care and the positives of destruction. This festival acts as a provocation, a launch of a long term enquiry to open up and sustain conversations and introduce new critical voices. We are excited for the future and how by working to build communities around ideas we can mobilise support, resistance and understanding.
