Captain of The Hour: Claire Cunningham
Jess Thom / Touretteshero
Part of Journey To A Better World
Claire Cunningham is a performer and creator of multi-disciplinary performance based in Glasgow, Scotland. One of the UK’s most acclaimed and internationally renowned disabled artists, Cunningham’s work is often rooted in the study and use/misuse of her crutches and the exploration of the potential of her own specific physicality with a conscious rejection of traditional dance techniques (developed for non-disabled bodies). This runs alongside a deep interest in the lived experience of disability and its implications not only as a choreographer but also in terms of societal notions of knowledge, value, connection and interdependence. At the Festival Theaterformen 2022 she will be a guest together with Jess Curtis and their production The Way You Look (at me) Tonight.
