Hardy Animal is a tender solo that looks at chronic pain and human resilience. A goodbye letter to a former self and an ode to dance.

Concerned with the human body and its failings, Hardy Animal tells of a dancer’s journey into immobility. It retraces a brutal journey of loss, and hope, and looks at our need to create meaning in a baffling world.

‘It is entirely excellent, it’s defiant, and angry and sad and funny and beautiful and brave and just so very very good indeed.’ Daniel Kitson

Written, created and performed by Laura Dannequin
Creative advisor: Dan Canham
Created with support from The Wellcome TrustArts Council EnglandBristol Old Vic Ferment and Theatre Bristol.
