Richard Wakely in Conversation with performer and choreographer Claire Cunningham

Richard Wakely in Conversation with performer and choreographer Claire Cunningham

22 Oct 2014 1:00PM - 22 Oct 2014 12:00AM

Description:

 Richard Wakely, Director of the Ulster Bank Belfast Festival at Queen’s, will speak with Festival Artist-in-Residence, Claire Cunningham about her experiences and latest work, ‘Guide Gods’, which looks at the perspectives of different Faiths towards the subject of disability. Claire Cunningham is a Glasgow-based performer and choreographer of multi-disciplinary performance. One of the UK’s most acclaimed and internationally renown self-identifying disabled artists, Cunningham's work is intelligent and humorous. It 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). Richard Wakely is the Director of the Ulster Bank Belfast Festival at Queen’s and is a member of the Board of Directors of Dance Ireland.
