Claire Cunningham, Bethany Wells und Luke Pell
The Choreography of Care
Claire Cunningham, tanzhaus nrw Factory Artist 2017 – 2019 and recently honoured for her Outstanding Artistic Development in dance at the 2021 German Dance Awards, demonstrates the importance Care, for oneself and others, takes in her work, as well as in the work of esteemed colleagues and artists, with this limited-edition publication series.
Following her last production Thank You Very Much (2019) and several intense dialogues held with the ensemble and the team as well as with rabbi, scientist, and activist Julia Watts Belser, Claire Cunningham began to develop clear framing structures for the different meanings of Care within each activity:
From the desire to deepen those questions with the tanzhaus nrw team, the Choreography of Care symposium comes, which will take place in March 2022. Until then, we would like to introduce you to all participating artists and share initial thoughts on the topic of Care.
