Perth International Arts Festival says
Taking the form of a series of tests, of body and of faith, 'Give Me a Reason to Live' is a stark solo inspired by the work and world of Medieval painter Hieronymus Bosch. A study in the notion of empathy, the work explores issues of religion - in particular Western religious art, the judgement of bodies and quality of life.

Set to a mesmerising sound score crafted by Zoë Irvine, 'Give Me a Reason to Live' is choreographed and performed by Cunningham and features her own haunting version of one of J.S. Bach’s chorale cantatas. The work exists both as a live memorial to the disabled victims of the Nazi euthanasia program and to the current victims of the present UK governments so-called ‘welfare reform’.
