Julie Cunningham Company presents: To Be Me

This event has passed

Set to the poetry of the acclaimed spoken word artist and rapper Kate Tempest, To Be Me explores the themes of gender, identity and the changing body. Based on the Greek myth of Tiresias – the blind prophet, born a man and transformed into a woman by the gods, Hera and Zeus – Tempest’s verse becomes the intricate accompaniment to a striking and uncompromising choreographic work exemplifying Cunningham’s and her dancers’ extraordinary technical ability.
