ABOUT THE WORK
Award-winning dancer and choreographer Julie Cunningham presents a new performance, continuing their research into the queer body. They will invite the audience into an environment where they and their collaborators will be making and doing dance. Working at the boundaries between their daily, living body and their more public, dancing body, Cunningham will attempt to create a practical space for making and being. Influenced by Gertrude Stein’s life and work, the performers will build a collection of dance works through the night. Performed by Julie Cunningham, Eleanor Perry, Chess Boughey, Harry Alexander, and JD Samson, best known as a member of the bands Le Tigre and MEN.
The space is open to the public to observe preparation and dancing from 7pm —midnight with structured moments of performance at 8pm, 9pm, 10pm, 11pm
