Julie Cunningham’s mesmerising performances with Merce Cunningham and Michael Clark Company won her a Critics’ Circle Award. In Dance Base’s intimate performance space, she offers
the audience a unique combination of precise dance and incendiary spoken word about gender and identity, inspired by the mythical Tiresias, who was transformed by the gods from male to female for seven years.

To Be Me features four world class dancers (including Cunningham herself) using Kate Tempest’s rhythmic, hip hop influenced reworking of the ancient Greek myth in a visceral and lyrical recording from the poetry collection Hold Your Own.
