Claire Cunningham in conversation

WOW Artist-in-Residence Claire Cunningham’s unique performance style integrating the dynamic use of her crutches has been acclaimed for its humorous and intelligent challenges to issues of disability, aesthetics and dance.

In her dance performance Ménage à Trois, Claire asks whether her crutches have prevented potential partners from being interested in her or if she uses them as a defence mechanism.

Her next project ‘Pink Mist’ explores the legacy of landmines and conflict in Cambodia and their role in creating a population with one of the highest instances of disability in the world.
