Pain and I is a bold exploration into chronic pain experience, featuring playful choreography, experimental dance, intimate autobiographical text, and new classical music composition. This work unashamedly celebrates the rich complexities of living with pain and asks: what can pain teach us? You are invited to reflect on what it means to care for our bodies, ourselves, and each other in times of personal and collective pain. Diversely accessible – performance (live), audio experience (digital), visual publication (digital).
