In the site of care work another shape of ‘family’ appears
A care worker from Philippines who works at a nursing home for old people in Fukuoka re-enacts her daily work and talks about herself and her family/pamilya back home Takuya Murakawa, a theatre director and filmmaker based in Kyoto, has conducted research on nursing facilities in Fukuoka in 2019, and created this performance featuring a Filipino care worker whom he met there (premiered in 2020). The care worker who had already returned back to her home country is invitied to perform this piece. The title “Pamilya” in Tagalog means family. This work questions beyond the national boundaries the nature of giving and receiving care, something which nobody who lives in contemporary societies can stay unrelated to.
