Description

Hardy Animal by Laura Dannequin

A tender solo that looks at chronic pain and human resilience, Hardy Animal is a goodbye letter to a former self and an ode to dance.

Concerned with the human body and its failings, it tells of a dancer’s journey into immobility. Interweaving text and movement, it retraces a brutal journey of loss, and hope, and looks at our need to create meaning in a baffling world.

“It is entirely excellent, it is defiant, and angry and sad and funny and beautiful and brave and just so very very good indeed!” Daniel Kitson

Written, created and performed by Laura Dannequin

Creative Advisor: Dan Canham

Created with support from The Wellcome Trust, Arts Council England, Bristol Old Vic Ferment and Theatre Bristol and informed in part by interviews with University of Bristol researchers with expertise in pain.
