Exploring the impact of illness and disability on identity, through dance.

There is still a stigma around illness and disability, and a lot of the time people and their families lack the language to describe what is happening to their identity.

Through an intimately choreographed dance and complementary video and sound installation, Annabel Taylor Munt’s Tender Balance explores the effects of illness and disability on masculinity and femininity.

It is a project aiming to open-up the conversation around the topic through artistic expression. The project was developed through an open dialogue with communities in Leeds, who shared their experiences on the subject through a collection of notes on self, moments of grief and stories of survival. The dance was choreographed to express and reflect upon these dialogues, and five dancers will reflect on the experiences shared here, and the expectations of the hyper-masculine and feminine human body through history, the media and art, in this unique performance. A video and sound installation is exhibited alongside a live dance performance.
