Palliative Neglect

Palliative Neglect: The World Spelled Backwards, is a series of community discussions/workshops culminating in an interdisciplinary video, sound, and performance installation addressing queer health and healthcare in contemporary America.

This work is scheduled to premiere in the Summer of 2013. Led by independent choreographer/object designer/performance maker, Erica Mott, an interdisciplinary and intergenerational collective of four artists including Paul Escriva (writer, performance artist), Rebecca Kling (actor/writer), Dion Walton (female impersonator/writer), Clint Wilson (video artist/sculptor) have been brought together to create a performative installation and catalyze new discussion regarding the state of health of the queer community and the challenge the presence of our bodies pose in the American Healthcare System.

As queer artists and activists investigating our ever evolving, aging, and non-normative bodies, we are cultivating creative modes and responses to address both the queer body’s navigation of the current healthcare system as well as the overall state of health and/or disease within the queer community.
