Mayfest: Laura Dannequin, Hardy Animal

Saturday 24 May 2014, 18:00 to 18:45

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.

“A dance with words. A funny dance. A dance without a safety net. A dance that isn’t a dance, a generous dance, a fucking fuck you of a dance. A dance that looks you in the eye and says ‘you can’t fix this’” James Stenhouse of Action Hero

Developed with support from Bristol Ferment, Theatre Bristol and Arts Council England.

Written, created & performed by Laura Dannequin.
Creative Advisor: Dan Canham
