Drawing on scores, ideas, and themes from their work The Way You Look (at me) Tonight — developed in collaboration with philosopher of perception Alva Noë — Curtis and Cunningham lead an investigation through movement, language, writing, watching, listening and feeling, of how difference — of physicality or lived experience — can shape, and is shaped by, the way we ‘perform’ our perceptions. This workshop is accessible to people of diverse physicalities.

Claire Cunningham, Jess Curtis and Alva Noë will be leading a MELT Reading Group on January 17. Jess and Claire will also be presenting a work as part of American Realness January 10-13.
