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.
Composer: James Hazel
Performers: Alexandra Ford, Allie Graham, Nicholas Jachno, Mikayla Nangle & Skip Willcox
Audience 14 +
Proudly Supported by: Maitland Regional Art Gallery
