What is the difference between ‘living with’ and ‘suffering from’ pain and illness? How does the way we talk about our own bodies, or what we choose to do to them, affect our experiences?  The existence of chronic, as opposed to acute, pain and sickness can challenge many of our ideas about healthcare. In this evening of conversation, performance artist Martin O’Brien and choreographer Laura Dannequin will discuss and share their work in relation to their own experiences of chronic sickness and pain.  Martin O’Brien’s work considers existence with a severe chronic illness within our contemporary situation. Martin suffers from cystic fibrosis and his work is an act of resistance to illness, an attempt at claiming agency and a celebration of his body.  Laura Dannequin is a French-born artist working predominantly in and with movement. The Secret Slowness of Movement and Hardy Animal -a work about her experience of living with idiopathic chronic pain- has toured in both arts and medical contexts and was selected for Aerowaves 2016.
