Careful (2016 - ) is a performance created by Chimera, a research network led by Alex Mermikides and operating out of Kingston University. Chimera explores performance-making that engages with aspects of the medical domain, including biomedical science; illness experiences; and medical practices. While our previous project, bloodlines, centred on patients’ perspectives of deep illness, Careful now turns the focus from the patient to the healthcare worker, specifically nurses. Created in collaboration with the colleagues in the nursing department, it explores nursing as a performance and performance as a form of caregiving. A programme of arts-based training for nurses is currently being developed alongside the performance. The first phase of Careful was supported with public funds through the Arts Council of England.
