The Way You Look (at me) Tonight
A Duet by Claire Cunningham and Jess Curtis
Tuesday 23 & Wednesday 24 May 7.30pm (see below for details of Assisted Performances)
© Sven Hagolani
How do we look at each other? How do we allow ourselves to be seen? How do our bodies shape the ways we perceive the world around us? Can we change how we see others?
Dancing, singing, telling stories and asking questions, leading UK disabled artist Claire Cunningham and international choreographer and performer Jess Curtis, combine performance, original music, and video to wrestle (sometimes literally) with important questions about our habits and practices of perceiving each other and the world.
In collaboration with noted author and philosopher of perception Dr. Alva Noë, video artist Yoann Trellu, composer Matthias Herrmann, and dramaturge Luke Pell.
