Sarah Hopfinger | Pain and I

Sarah Hopfinger | Pain and I

Monday 11 March  - Friday 15 March

What does it mean to care for our bodies, ourselves, and each other in times of personal and collective pain?

Sarah Hopfinger will join us in residence ahead of taking her critically acclaimed performance Pain and I on tour across Scotland.

A bold exploration into chronic pain experience, Pain and I unashamedly celebrates the rich complexities of living with pain. Layering 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 solo performance.
