Chronic pain, choreography and performance: practices of resilience
Research output: Contributions to journals › Article › peer-review
This article focuses on resilience and chronic pain in the context of choreography and performance. Through critically-creatively reflecting on my practice-as-research project, Ecologies of Pain, I explore practices of resilience that emerge from turning towards and working creatively with chronic pain. I draw from two strands of the performance research – collaborating with disabled artist Raquel Meseguer and devising a new autobiographical solo performance, Pain and I. Taking disability studies as my critical framework, I think through a cripped politics of resilience, where chronic pain bodies are understood as valid, valuable and skilled.
