‘Information in the universe may be communicating in an instantaneous way. Where everything is actually talking to everything instantaneously, across all scales. So when you move your little finger, everything in the universe knows you moved that finger, and adjusts for it’, Nassim Haramein. Submerge into HumanHood’s visually and sonically mesmerising performance where two dancers entangle through a ritualistic journey of energy shifting movement. A spiritual dance into a dream-like world of imagination and beauty.
HumanHood was founded in 2015 by Rudi Cole and Júlia Robert Parés. The company research is based on their curiosity for physics and human consciousness, always questioning the reality we live in. Rudi and Julia are Associate Artists at DanceXchange and Déda, in England. Their recent work includes Orbis an outdoor duet commissioned by Without Walls Consortium and the company’s first full-length duet ZERO. In 2017 onwards, HumanHood will be developing Torus, a group piece for 5 dancers, to be premiered in Spring 2019 at the Patrick Centre, in Birmingham.
