"Eclectic, provocative, and often fascinating." —San Francisco Chronicle

How do we look at each other? How do we allow ourselves to be seen? The Way You Look (at me) Tonight is a sensory journey through dancing, singing, and stories. Claire Cunningham, one of the UK’s most acclaimed disabled artists, and international choreographer and performer Jess Curtis combine performance, original music, and video to wrestle (sometimes literally) with questions about how we perceive each other and the world. The dancers perform a duet that excavates their own ways of seeing each other—as a man and woman of different ages, bodies, and backgrounds—while also addresssing queerness, sexism, and ableism. The show unfolds on the MainStage with a small audience on stage surrounding the dancers.

The piece contains spoken word and occasional strong language.

Presented in association with the Office of the Vice President for Human Resources, Diversity, and Multicultural Affairs through the UVM President’s Initiative for Diversity.
