A public performance on health and care by Jody Wood with Alexandre Diaphre.
Como Está A Sua Saúde? installs a mobile, artistic ‘wellness clinic’ in public spaces. Performers will engage visitors in open conversation about health in English or Portuguese, and will invite participants to write prescriptions for each other concerning social, emotional, mental, civic, physical, and spiritual health. The project explores health as a social contract and re-imagines personal wellness as a gift that can be transferred through community exchange.
