Glasgow-based artist Claire Cunningham brings her work to Australia for the first time as PIAF’s 2016 Artist in Residence. A self-identifying disabled artist, Cunningham’s unique work consciously rejects traditional dance techniques in its exploration of her physicality, incorporating the crutches that have been a part of her life since age 14. Her acclaimed shows Guide Gods and Give Me A Reason To Live are two related perspectives on disability and faith.
