​In a dark private chamber, a lonely woman begins to craft the perfect man out of the only thing she knows - her crutches.

A hauntingly beautiful study of love, obsession, loneliness and manipulation, Ménage a Trois is a visually stunning piece of dance theatre from award-winning performer Claire Cunningham and choreographer/video artist Gail Sneddon.

Set within an extraordinary, animated environment, it envelops the performers in a surreal, imaginary world.

This darkly humorous and deeply personal portrait explores Claire's twenty-year relationship with her crutches and asks if it's possible to find love when there are already three of you in the relationship.

 ...superb animations by Gail Sneddon wrap around the space, conjuring shifting locales or floating Cunninghams's spoken words into fleeting view, creating striking visual imagery that adds subtext to the choreography.




...This fearless fierce and beautiful show...
