Giant Hand Performance Calls Attention To A Little-Known Disease [Video]
200 people come together in London's Covent Garden to visually illustrate Dupuytren's Disease.
Earlier this month, two hundred people in skin-colored outfits stood together in London’s Covent Garden to form a giant human hand. This performance aimed to highlight Dupuytren’s Disease, by visually illustrating the progressive and debilitating hand condition. It also launched the ‘Dupuytren’s Disease: It is in Your Hands’ campaign, which encourages those who are living with the condition to visit their GP. The performance directed people to the campaign’s website, which offers more information on the disease along with a symptoms checker, FAQ and other resources.
