SHUDDER, by Susanna Hood and hum dansoundart

August 6, 7, 8, 10, 11, 12, 14 at the Lower Ossington Theatre
Award-winning choreographer Susanna Hood dreams the canvases of Francis Bacon to life. Shudder channels the sublime intensity of Bacon’s paintings through the fractured narrative of a family – portrayed by Hood, Danny Wild and Alanna Kraaijeveld – that is fraught with violence and shimmering sexual energy.  The trio captivates the audience as they teeter heart-wrenchingly between love and desperation.
