1 hr 30 minFrom £10

Performance | Biology, Dance, Technology

Examine the human body’s biological form and the technological drive to transcend it. Three performers, isolated yet connected digitally in an interactive space of motion-responsive visuals, explore tensions between mind and body, containment and connection, and the desire to be unique as well as part of something larger than ourselves. Sadler’s Wells New Wave Associate Alexander Whitley creates ambitious and intellectually engaged work with innovation and digital technology at its core.

Motion-responsive visuals by Uncharted Limbo Collective, creative technology by Fenyce and new soundtrack created by Mercury Prize 2021 nominee Hannah Peel with Kincaid.

COVID security

With a sizable number of staff, performers, volunteers, and indeed the public, not yet fully vaccinated, we encourage our visitors to continue wearing masks and to practice social distancing so that we can all feel safe and protected. We see this as an important step to protecting everyone involved in creating culture in Oxford, and kindly request that visitors remain considerate during this time. In the event of a change in COVID status, the Festival reserves the right to convert in-person events to digital if required and will inform all ticket holders of any changes.
