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 a normally private 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 non-sense. Performed by Julie Cunningham, Eleanor Perry, Chess Boughey and Harry Alexander, with live music from the musician, DJ and producer JD Samson, best known as a member of the bands Le Tigre and MEN.
