Manual Labours: The Complaining Body

An exploration into the world of workplace complaints led by Sophie Hope and Jenny Richards with artist Sarah Browne, choreographer Hamish MacPherson and writer Ivor Southwood. The smile which has become the required uniform of workers in coffee shops, classrooms, care homes and call centres hides and stifles our ability to complain and collectivise around our working conditions. Ivor Southwood, Sophie Hope and Jenny Richards will be working on the platform with commuters and the local public and in the Complaining Body Complaints Office located on Platform 2, Foregate Street, Worcester, all passengers are invited to gather and discuss your workplace struggles. Drop in 12-3pm 21-25 April, 2015 or come and find us on the platform during rush hours.manuallabours3
