AlterumAlterum – Latin for ‘other’, steals from ancient and current mythologies of the supernatural body, Alterum manifests newfound heroes in a parallel existence that is both urgent and obscure.
Six hybrid bodies march, wrestle, writhe and fly in a collective dance that reflects the human desire to reach beyond the limits of our bodies whilst seeking to maintain the primal instincts of connection, protection, intimacy and desire.
With a bold, original score from long time collaborator Clark, Alterum celebrates the potential of the supernatural body by navigating and negotiating a meeting between hyper-reality and human-ness.
