CDF: Hardy Animal
Hardy Animal is a tender solo that looks at chronic pain and human resilience. A goodbye letter to a former self and an ode to dance.
Concerned with the human body and its failings, Hardy Animal tells of a dancer’s journey into immobility. It retraces a brutal journey of loss, and hope, and looks at our need to create meaning in a baffling world.
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.
