Humanhood are comprised of Co-Artistic Directors Júlia Robert and Rudi Cole and their duet ‘Zero’, a collaborative effort with musicians, sound designers and lighting designers has been touring for almost 18 months now.
‘Zero’ is an audacious work that includes a 5 minute blackout mid piece so the audience can experience the surround sound audio design with absolutely no distractions.
The company say this much about the work;
“Zero is a duet performed with stunning physicality and flowing choreography that takes the audience on a mesmerising journey. Humanhood is a company to watch out for – one of the rising stars of contemporary dance.
A visually and sonically mesmerising performance of immersive sound, hypnotising lights and virtuoso movement where the two dancers entangle through a ritualistic journey. Experience a spiritual dance and be transported into a dream-like world of imagination and beauty.”
‘Zero’ is performed by Rudi Cole and Júlia Robert with Sound Design & Composition by Iain Armstrong, Lighting Design by Horne Horneman, Costumes by Mark Howard and music from Gyda Valtysdottir (cello & voice), Alex Forster,Xhosa Cole, Azizi Cole and Shahza Ismaily
