Sore for Punching You


Sore for Punching You is the blanket name covering all artistic endeavours initiated and executed by dance / theatre and performance artist Allison Cummings.

Sore for Punching You has one consistent key collaborator, sound designer and creator Lyon Smith.

The multidisciplinary work of Sore for Punching You delves into socially conscious subject matters that explore questions of tradition, authenticity and the intricate measures humans take to communicate.

Experimenting with techniques that build from linking humanity to artistic creativity, hospitality, and the juxtapositions between humour, darkness, impulse and detailed precision, Allison develops content driven performance works that envelop a diversity of ideas by creating original relational aesthetics.

As a strong believer in community and responsibility, her work cannot be separated from the individual artist or viewer, as neither can the reverberations of the content. As an artist with a choreographic background, Allison’s work tends towards an integrated or multidisciplinary nature. Movement is rarely the impetus behind the ideas or vision, however becomes an integral element by the end of each process.

Look out for Exhale, a new full length work premiering October 2018 in Toronto.
