Succumb explores care-- when we accept it, when we reject it. How do we express care without touch or contact? When and how is care a joy? When is care a “care” or a “burden”? What are some of the unwritten and unspoken ideas around care in our different communities? How do we “take” care; who does the “care-giving?” Why? Succumb searches for connection, seeks relationship, exposes the desire to belong.
