Claire Cunningham is a performer and creator of multi-disciplinary performance based in Scotland. Originally a classically trained singer, she began to work in dance in 2005 after working with US choreographer Jess Curtis. Curtis kindled Cunningham's curiosity in her own potential for movement, which led instinctively into the desire to make her own work. A self-identifying disabled artist, Cunningham's work is often rooted in the study and use/misuse of her crutches, and the exploration of the potentiality of her own specific physicality, with a conscious rejection of traditional dance techniques (developed for non-disabled bodies) or the attempt to move with the pretense of a body or aesthetic other than her own.
