Nicole Zizzi and Alana Rochford are dancers who met for the first time at an audition. For Nicole, who is 27, the audition was a turning point in her recovery from hip surgery, a procedure called periacetabular osteotomy (PAO).

Nicole’s Story: Dancing my way through pain
October 18, 2018
We dancers usually don’t express our pain; in fact, we almost like to be in pain because it means we’re working hard and improving. So, when I woke up one morning two years ago and I couldn’t lift my left leg, I knew something was very wrong. This pain was too intense to ignore.
Northeastern University‘s Center for Design (CfD), housed within the College of Arts, Media and Design (CAMD), developed a visual atlas that is currently on display at the 2019 Shenzhen Bi-City Biennale of Urbanism/Architecture.
Nicole Zizzi is a dancer and student in the Architecture program. She worked with a database that shows the career trajectories of professional dancers, creating an artistic illustration of how dancers move through their careers.
