What the Treat Meant (created with Catherine Long) is an intimate conversation about stigmatised bodies – and what it’s like to have one. Inspired by the history of un-ease, dis-ease between disability and illness discourses, What the Treat Meant is a facilitated conversation and interactive performance which takes place for up to 20 people inside a spa or sauna. We are getting down to our skivvies to look at our bodies, look at other bodies, share our vulnerabilities, and explore the space between illness and disability.
At the end of each What the Treat Meant, we asked each audience member to write down a treatment which would make them feel beautiful and relaxed.
