Director's statement
The choreography takes its cue from the Japanese dance style of Butoh, a post-war exploration of death and decay through precise, slow movement, employing cadaver-like body paint and pained facial expressions to convey human suffering and mortality. Transposing this style to a science-fiction setting, our performer looks not to the past but to the future, a future where Artificial Intelligence screams silently at its digital prison. The struggle for identity and self will become a personal war as society becomes more digitised, until all of us scuttling ants are reduced to numbered barcodes.
