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

After a critically acclaimed world premiere at the Fringe with Made In Scotland (2022), Pain and I by Sarah Hopfinger is touring 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.

A diversely accessible body of work, Pain and I can be experienced as a live performance (all performances relaxed, with additional BSL integrated shows), audio piece, a graphic score (designed by Michaela Pointon & Rachel O’Neill).
