About Jules Cunningham

Jules Cunningham (they/them) is based in South London, originally from Liverpool and has worked as a dancer for 20+ years (Critics Circle National Dance Award in 2014) working with Merce Cunningham Dance Company and Michael Clark Company and in projects with Boris Chartmatz, Thick & Tight, Pauline Boudry / Renate Lorenz across Europe.

Jules founded Julie Cunningham & Company in 2017, to create and present work that combines clarity of form with an interest in gender identity and the body. Jules uses a movement language that draws on their technical dance training, expanding and queering it collaboratively, working between sound, text, visual art.

Jules recently premiered how did we get here? a work for Jules, dancer Harry Alexander and Spice Girl Melanie C.

Teaching and performance work is informed by solo and collaborative movement exploration, queerness, lived experience of mental illness, disability and exclusion based on Jules’ working class background and non-binary identity.



The ORTUS Centre is owned and operated by Maudsley Charity for the benefit of the community. Maudsley Charity is a principal funder of Bethlem Gallery which curates exhibitions at ORTUS.
