A dancer struggles to dance again after a spinal injury while elsewhere a woman struggles to conquer her intrusive thoughts. For her the mind is a battlefield and a bully. For him it holds the key to regaining movement. Using dance, poetry and original music this piece explores what it’s like to get stuck and come unstuck, to have a visible impairment and an invisible one and the power of the mind to hurt and to heal.
