Rest as Resistance. Rest is Resistance.
Join Toni-Dee in a push back against ableism, turning the weary body from an engine for capitalism into a site for rest and repose.
Doze is a one-to-one installation for folks who are overworked, overwhelmed and overloaded. By disrupting the busiest of public spaces and inviting audiences to enter into a dreamscape with her, Toni-Dee will make visible and reclaim as beautiful our responses to that which is painful and exhausting. Doze offers the opportunity to hold our bodies as a site of healing.
