Hardy Animal

Hardy Animal
13 & 15-17 August 4.15pm
Drill Hall Studio

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.

‘An invisible dance, a broken dance, a dance that walks a tightrope strung up across two huge mountains, 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

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

Look out for an accompanying fine-print book designed with Jono Lewarne of City Edition Studio.

With support from: Bristol Old Vic Ferment, the Wellcome Trust, the National Lottery through Grants for the Arts, and Theatre Bristol.
