  • Hosted By:Co3 Contemporary Dance
  • Festivals:Perth Festival
  • Performing Arts:Dance

Description

WATCH AT HOME EVENT ONLINE NOW UNTIL SUN 15 AUG, 11pm (AWST) Presented by Co3 Contemporary Dance Australia A Perth Festival Commission Archives of Humanity from Co3 Contemporary Dance Australia is a living and emotive meditation on human existence. A celebration of community, exploring the ways individuals respond and care for each other in a crisis. The work features a remarkable set – a flock of birds, created by and carrying the stories of members of the Western Australian community in isolation. The birds united, soar as a collective symbol of endurance and hope. The sweeping narratives in the performance embrace the memories, desires, and aspirations of an affected community. Eden Mulholland's stunning score opens the performance, echoing the movements of an ensemble of dancers in a gradual and persistent climbing arc of cyclical patterns. Some of the art world’s most striking scenes are reimagined in humanity’s tumultuous bid to transcend. To rise, to fall, but to always try to rise again – together. To purchase tickets please visit: https://www.perthfestival.com.au/events/archives-of-humanity-watch-at-home/

Description

Love is in the air in Athens – and it's contagious. Besides the royal wedding, which is just days away, there are young lovers dreaming of enchanted futures together. Hermia and Lysander are besotted with one another, while Helena adores Demetrius. The only snag is that Demetrius loves Hermia - and he's got Hermia's father on his side. So nobody is happy. (Shakespeare wasn't kidding when he said the course of true love never did run smooth.) Determined to be together, Hermia and Lysander meet in a moonlit forest, with plans to elope. Following hot on their heels is Demetrius, who in turn is pursued by a lovelorn Helena. But the young lovers are not alone in the forest. Nick Bottom and his hapless bunch of tradies have gathered to rehearse a play to be performed at the royal wedding. And, hidden from human eyes, a mischievous sprinkling of fairies are also in the forest that night. The three worlds collide in an explosion of comic confusion that throws the future of all the lovers into jeopardy.
