Body Narratives 1

Part 1 of ‘Body Narratives` is a personal exploration of invisible disability, or hidden disability in the body of a professional dancer. How acceptance plays a part in learning to work under new conditions and limitations that can still satisfy creative desires. And understanding that the impact of illness on creativity needn’t be hidden or apologized for. Using dance and text as tools Suzie navigates through memories, feelings and thoughts, together with Mattias in his role as her life and work partner.

Body Narratives 1 is the first part of a larger project called Ways of Doing which will be premiered in the autumn of 2020 as part of CODA Dance Festival in Oslo.
