Daniel Cunningham is a white African performance artist born in Kwa Zulu Natal. He performed internationally in award winning work with Teatr ZAR, resident company of the Grotowski Institute (Wroclaw-Poland), in Paris, Edinburgh and London, and on tours with Zar to Spain, Georgia and Turkey. He led his own collective called SoundBoxed (2013-2016) which ran for 3 years, performing across London at Theatre Delicatessen, Rich Mix, CPT, Barbican and New Diorama. Dan has also performed in works at Southbank, and Roundhouse. In 2016 he began a solo performance practice centred on converting the complexities of his intercultural and queer life experiences into a healing work of art for himself and his audiences. Dan’s principle collaborator in this work is Mark James Hamilton. In New Zealand, Mark spent a decade as the key creative collaborator of Mika, a queer Māori performer, who uses new haka to challenge gender roles. Mark's doctorate explored the interface of dance and martial arts, masculinity and femininity, exotica and erotica.
