EAT THE TEETH – AMY CUNNINGHAM
Eight years ago Amy got a bad haircut, so now she’s a vegan. She’s also a few other things – keeping her identity tapered from a 1 to a 0. Eat the Teeth explores the way we package our various selves. From the dairy alternative in her coffee to the person in her bed, Amy analyzes her behaviours like ingredients listed on a can of human.

Eat the Teeth in her own words:
“It’s an entanglement of identity and spectatorship that conveniently takes place onstage in front of people.”
