Learning from the Future by Colette Sadler

Imagine a post-human future where bodies have no purpose and are on the verge of disappearance.

In this new contemporary dance work by Colette Sadler, the futuristic female cyborg 'Body A' inhabits a science fiction world. Accelerating flows of information and encoded data have replaced the very fabric of reality, dictating how bodies move and function. The dancer has become a container – a selfless channel for flowing information, unable to distinguish between inner intention and external impulse.

Join us as we witness the primitive power of bodies against a background of their dematerialisation.

A thrilling and urgent ritual
