Experience a visceral and powerful double-bill of dance, veering between anarchy, punk music, heroism, idolatry, and loss. In a raw and riotous movement-led tribute to Mark E. Smith (lead singer of The Fall), Rules to Live By was born out of a spontaneous tribute dance in front of 150 people on the night of his death. Featuring bold choreography set to thought-provoking tracks, the work is a glittery and rebellious aspiration to a hero’s punk anarchy; a requiem for heroism, hedonism, rebirth, and dark disturbing humour. The second half of the double-bill, EIDOS, pays homage to Suzi’s beloved grandmother – A radical hero, artist, stalwart and her very own Vivienne Westwood. With emotionally unfolding movements, the work embodies female empowerment whilst challenging the difficulties of loss, identity and aging. 

          Suzi Cunningham is a Scottish live-performance artist and Scotland’s foremost female Butoh (Japanese dance theatre) artist. Her work has a strong ecological and political focus, exploring how the primal body meets the modern world.
