Choreographer Claire Cunningham and her ensemble of leading disabled performers invite you to join them for an evening at the Frankfurt LAB as they pull back the curtain on the glittering and mysterious world of the tribute artist.
Thank You Very Much takes to the floor with wit, glitz and a pulsating soundtrack. A performance that navigates up, down and all around society’s ideas of normality, and shakes up the myth of how bodies should be. The dancers pull on their sparkling costumes and ask: Who have we been trying to be all our lives? Has it ever been our choice? And what really is “the wonder of you”?
