Pain and I - performance, audio, graphic score - premiered at Edinburgh Fringe 2022 as part of the Made In Scotland Showcase, at Summerhall.

What does it mean to care for our bodies, ourselves, and each other in times of personal and collective pain?

Pain and I is a bold exploration into chronic pain experience by Sarah Hopfinger, which 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.

Diversely accessible –available as a live performance, an audio experience (**** The Guardian) and graphic score.
