What can you expect from a live performance of Chris Cunningham?

Being a director of videos, you are probably not sure what to expect in a live performance. Although he did not announced anything about the content of his set, it will most likely  be a special audio-visual show, which includes strange images with a particular aesthetic, amazing special effects, combined to perfection with music. A common element in the work of Cunningham is the love for anatomy, but a sickly anatomy, twisted, dark images, rolling movements and ideas completely surprising.

The aesthetics of Cunningham’s work is, to say the least, impressive and disturbing, but really original. Highlights of his work in collaboration with musician Aphex Twin, are:

  • Come to Daddy (music video)
  • Widowclicker (music video)
  • Monkey Drummer (short film)
  • Rubber Johnny (short film)
