magnificent remains

2021

What remains when we offer surrealism to the body? How does one dance with the subconscious?

Magnificent Remains is a contemporary dance work by Brittany Kohler in collaboration with Dance Plant Collective, inspired by the surrealism movement. It is a nod to the original Surrealists, who, in pursuit of liberation turned to the unconscious mind.

We now welcome the 2021 Surrealists. They have spent the last while waltzing with surrealism - discovering, abandoning and following their noses without rationale. They will offer us an insight into their investigations, a dip into a world where dreams are placed on a pedestal and logic is abandoned in favour of possibility. Watch as the body receives and reacts in a collage of juxtapositions.

With movement based images of surrealism, Magnificent Remains is performed by a stellar cast of dancers. An incredible sound score has been designed by james risbey, Costume by Zoë McNicholas, and Lighting by Paul Bennett.
