ABOUT THE SHOW
Witness this free nightly, durational dance bad dream, set in a retro-futurist beige enclosure in the middle of a huge, derelict office.
Universal Estate is a world of light, sound, objects and movement; a living sculpture where retro-futurism meets contemporary nihilism. Two humans navigate an environment of strange technological objects with no known function. They meander aimlessly in a world that has left them with a seemingly never-ending collection of superseded manufactured tools and materials.
Universal Estate responds to a dilemma resulting from the industrial and technological revolutions of recent centuries. The work questions our throw-away society, our obsession with the next latest thing and how we can find meaning in a world made up of the material things of past generations.
