Pain and I- Dance @ Heart of Hawick
What does it mean to care for our bodies, ourselves and each other in times of personal and collective pain?
Pain and I is a bold exploration into chronic pain experience by Sarah Hopfinger which unashamedly celebrates the rich complexities of living with pain. Featuring playful choreography, experimental dance, intimate autobiographical text and original classical music composition by Alicia Jane Turner, Hopfinger asks: ‘what can pain teach us?’ in this powerful, honest, and compelling work.
A diversely accessible body of work, Pain and I can be experienced as live dance performance, digital audio experience, and digital or published graphic score.
Pain and I was awarded the FQD Choreographic Work and Indoor Performance/International Prize in Montreal, Canada.
Suitable for ages 16+.
