Julie Cunningham & Company: To Be Me

Julie Cunningham & Company, led by Rambert’s inaugural Leverhulme Choreography Fellow, make a guest appearance with Rambert, presenting Cunningham’s critically acclaimed work inspired by the myth of Tiresias.

In the story, the gods turn Tiresias from male to female for seven years. Returned to his original form, he loses his eyes but is given the power of insight, living the rest of his life as the blind prophet.

With a narrative quality, To Be Me features four dancers and is set to Kate Tempest’s rhythmic, hip-hop influenced reworking of the ancient Greek myth, the lyrical recording taken from the poetry collection Hold Your Own.
