Pain and I

8 November @ 7:30 pm - 9 November @ 8:15 pm

£6 – £8

Sarah Hopfinger presents Pain And I, a bold and intimate audio piece, exploring the complexities of chronic pain experience through autobiographical text, sound and music at Tramway.

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 also be experienced as an audio piece, a graphic score (designed by Michaela Pointon & Rachel O’Neill), and a new installation (designed by Rachel O’Neill).
