DIG: Suzi Cunningham | Rules to Live By/EIDOS
Part of Tramway's DIG spring season
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 200 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.
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 ageing.
