Dance & Dialogue is a dual presentation of movement and words, illuminating distinctive artistic practice.

Dance:
A trio between a classical dancer, an aerial artist and a contemporary dancer. The piece explores Suzie’s tempestuous relationship with her condition, generalised dystonia. The second work plays with notions of support and balance, exploring Suzie’s changing physicality during the cyclical patterns of her condition.

Dialogue:
Suzie Birchwood brings together collaborators from her research process, specifically looking at how her neuroplasticity specialist has been working to revolutionise Suzie’s dystonia treatment. By revealing her shifting physicality, Birchwood aims to show that the disorder is a unique and changing aspect of her identity as a dancer. BSL interpreted.
