Claire Cunningham – ME


Mobile Evolution is a double bill from award-winning dancer/choreographer Claire Cunningham. Claire is here at the macrobert showcasing her exceptional dance technique and impressive power. ME (Mobile/Evolution) is a show woven from humorous stories; about doctors and dancing, bikes and ballet; all threaded together and balanced upon, hanging from, spinning on and swinging on crutches. Any possible sentimentality is undercut with a healthy dose of Scottish sarcasm. Audiences for this critically acclaimed production, seen at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival in 2009, have been delighted, as well as provoked into questioning their ideas of aesthetics and dance.

 Evolution (one help of her performance) earned Cunningham a nomination for Best Female Performer at the Dublin Fringe Festival ’07 and the piece has been since been presented at Tramway Glasgow, Pustervik Theatre Gothenburg, Potsdamer Tanztage and as part of the Firsts season at the Royal Opera House, Covent Garden in 2008.

 Claire Cunningham – ME is at the macrobert on the 10th July at 8pm. Plus to all you lucky customers we are offering half price tickets! For more information call our box office on 01786 466666.

 ”Before your eyes, Mobile transforms something utilitarian into a thing of beauty.” – The Guardian
