Rest as Resistance
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.

Public Rest Declaration
On Friday 7 August, Toni-Dee will be performing between 9am-5pm in a re-imagining of Doze for the current times.
This is a durational drop-in performance where the audience are invited to join Toni-Dee and dedicate a part of the "working day" to rest.
If you are interested in being part of the audience, have a look at the audience invitation here and get in touch.
