Description

Jaz Woodcock-Stewart from award-winning company Antler collaborates with choreographer Morgann Runacre-Temple. A hairdryer, an oven, a letter opener. The local church, fiscal policy and Marie Kondo's folding technique. Civilisation is about the things we've lost and the things we've built. Civilisation is a day in the life of a woman following a tragic event. An experiment in theatrical realism and contemporary dance. From the creator behind critically acclaimed Lands, Civilisation is a sideways look at the untheatrical reality of loss. Music by ABBA and Bach. Horizon: Performance Created in England

Many congratulations to the entire team involved with the creation of Civilisation. This is a great piece of art. I can’t really explain why. Everyone interested in dance and theatre should see it.
