How is the approach to dance socially shaped? The artist Claire Cunningham and the choreographer Jess Curtis question habits of perception in their interactive performance. How do we allow ourselves to be seen? How do our bodies determine the way we perceive the world around us? Dancing, singing, telling stories and asking questions, the duet shows a research that was developed in collaboration with a perception philosopher, a video artist, composer and dramaturg. The Way You Look (at me) Tonight is a social sculpture - a sensual journey for two performers and audience.
