Claire Cunningham, a self-identifying disabled artist and choreographer based in Glasgow, invites us for a glimpse into this extraordinary world. Together with an ensemble of renowned artists with disabilities, Cunningham uses the phenomenon of ‘tribute artists’ to question ideas of identity, acceptance, and the challenge of being oneself. Who have we been trying to be all our lives? Has it ever been our choice?
Through the lens of the doppelgänger, the ensemble in sparkling costumes takes apart the myth of the ideal body and simultaneously questions social perceptions of normality with Cunningham’s typical humour. A tantalizing and highly original performance which swings lightning-fast between elation and despair, fun and poignancy. Is there a greater challenge in life than just being yourself?
