The Anatomy of Pain

About the show

The Anatomy of Pain is a two person show, in which you will accompany Alex on an authentic and intimate journey as she navigates the aftermath of a life-altering diagnosis.

Through a visceral blend of internal monologue, music, projections, and poignant poetry, you’ll be invited to witness how intense pain, resilience, and vulnerability shape interpersonal connections, perspective, and even identity.

Coming straight from a run at Brighton Fringe, where it was awarded The Chair's Bursary for Performers with a Disability, The Anatomy of Pain gives space to both the darkest and brightest moments of chronic illness, questioning the profound complexities of living in the liminal space after diagnosis.
