Inspired and informed by Horton’s personal experience, Concussion uses dance, music and voice to evoke the disorienting, frightening experience of coping with multiple concussions. Ping pong balls scatter around the stage, representing disparate memories, and anyone whose life has been touched by concussion—or indeed by brain conditions such as dementia, stroke, or traumatic brain injuries—will relate to this nuanced, at times humorous, and always-honest tale of memory, loss, trauma, making connections, and accepting change.
Concussion was graciously supported by Dance Victoria’s 2018 Chrystal Dance Award, and premiered in Berlin in August 2018 at ada studio.
