From award-winning choreographer Suzanne Cowan comes a bold autobiographical work, Manifesto of a Good Cripple. 

Following 2019's sold-out premier season, Manifesto of a Good Cripple has been re-envisioned into a powerful combination of dance, film and theatre, uniting the essence of Cowan's 20-year dance career with a subversive disability humour, within a surreal dream/landscape that captures her experience of a fluid identity.

"... each artistic choice produces a feast of perceptual and metaphorical intelligence." - Theatre Review, Felicity Malloy

Cowan takes the audience on a journey of how identity and body become synonymous with the landscapes that we move through, not just as a backdrop but as a visceral etching into our cellular memory. The fragility of identity is a recurring motif that Cowan embodies through her disruptive choreography.

From road tripping through the freezing, blizzard-swept Canadian Rockies to the highlights of performing at Queen Elizabeth Hall in London, Cowan reconfigures these experiences as a rich score of movement, sound, image and text, imbued with her unique perspective, and crystallised in her Manifesto statement as the antidote to inspiration porn.

The filmic backdrop is derived from archival footage and photographs, which locate Cowan’s evolution as a performer and choreographer.
