Human Remains

NEW DATES: Friday 10th December  & Saturday 11th December @ 7pm

Human Remains is a critical and playful glance at humanity in the 21st century.  In the shadows of an eminent apocalypse, Human Remains steps into the abyss of a dystopian world built on the ruins of what once was a glorious kingdom. A gentle unearthing of broken pieces from the ashes reveals beauty, grace, pain and power.

Choreographer: Omer Backley-Astrachan

Composer: James Hazel

Performers: Alexandra Ford, Allie Graham, Nicholas Jachno, Mikayla Nangle & Skip Willcox
