See below for details about show, how the contest works:

SummerWorks Presents:


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.
