“Smart, sensitive and sometimes sensual” ****  The Times

“their tender togetherness an affirmation of looking beyond appearances and seeing another person for who they really are.” **** The Herald (Scotland)

How do we look at each other?

How do we allow ourselves to be seen? How do our bodies shape the ways we perceive the world around us? Can we change how we see others?

The Way You Look (At Me) Tonight is a social sculpture—a sensory journey, for two performers and audience. Dancing, singing, telling stories and asking questions, leading UK disabled artist Claire Cunningham and international choreographer and performer Jess Curtis, combine performance, original music, and video to wrestle (sometimes literally) with important questions about our habits and practices of perceiving each other and the world.
