Seven Poems From An Unwritten Book Of Poetry is a research project based on the themes of past, present and future. Inspired by images and stories of the past and the future, the solo explores what we have always been, what we are now and what we will become. Playing to the beat of baroque music, the play weaves from one scene to the next, with poems alluding to the passing of time, and the life of an aging and constantly evolving body. Seven Poems From An Unwritten Book Of Poetry questions what has become precious to us and what we chose to let go of.

A bold exploration of chronic pain, Pain and I recounts the artist’s life experience through movement. The solo celebrates life’s rich complexity and asks: what can pain teach us? This powerful autobiography is performed on a classical original creation composed by Alicia Jane Turner. Through experiential dance, the artist invites us to rethink what it means to take care of our body, ourselves, and others, in times of personal and collective pain. Presented by queer and disabled creators Hopfinger (she/her) and Turner (they/them), Pain and I places their experience at the heart of the choreography. To promote access and arts to people living with a disability, the piece will also be shared as a digital partition and an audio piece.
