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.
