Learning from the Future

Sat 19 August — Sun 20 August 2017

The fictionality of a future in which the purpose and necessity of the human body are put into question creates the departures point for Learning from the Future. Operating within a science-fiction-like setting inhabited by a futuristic female body, Sadler's choreography uses movement to amplify the primitive power of bodies against the background of the dematerialisation and disappearance.

The idea of a futuristic "post-life" in this dance performance is taken as a poetic means to speculate on an inconceivable reality beyond the body - an environment where ever accelerating flows of information and encoded data could replace physical reality itself and dictate the manner in which new kinds of bodies move. In this work a futuristic female cyborg “Body A” inhabits a science fiction-like setting where she herself is on the point of disappearance.
