Within the programme Dance Dance Dance UK, promoted by the British Council, the Teatro Lliure, the Festival de Otoño a Primavera and the Sala Cuarta Pared present the new production of the acclaimed Scottish choreographer and dancer Claire Cunningham.
In Give me a reason to live, Cunningham explores her physicality in a solo inspired by the Dutch painter Hieronymous Bosch. Dance with no limits.
In a starkly beautiful work of transcendence and struggle, Claire delves into the work of medieval painter Hieronymous Bosch, to explore religion, religious art, and the judgment of souls and bodies. Through tests of both body and faith, Give Me A Reason To Live draws upon imagery of disabled people in Bosch’ s apocalyptic paintings to question our present perspectives on “otherness” and “difference”. Powerfully physical, visually striking, and set to a mesmerising score, Give Me a Reason to Live invites us to consider our own empathy, sympathy or indifference, in a work of both generosity and brutal immediacy.
