I exist. by Ruby Gray
A visualisation of support explored through the physical relationship of the performers as they gently assist an individual through abstracted every day activities. A touching work, not only in the narrative but also through the literal contact work of the performers, with themes and issues that are very impactful in a world that is now defined by distance. Even if it is not always visible support is always there. A little nudge, a helping hand.
