Project Description

∞ [INFINITE]

Humanhood’s Infinite is my fourth collaboration with the company as composer following ZERO (2016), Orbis (2017) and Sphera (2020). The score is a powerful combination of cosmic soundscapes, sacred earth rituals, shamanic experiences, the sounds of nature and guided meditation.

{Infinite} is Julia Robert and Rudi Cole’s first Dance Theatre Meditation in which they guide the audience through a mystical journey. The outside world of the magical dance on stage will merge with your internal awareness. The premise is movement and consciousness, becoming aware of the infinite power that flows to and through us, giving life to all beings.

The score features the amazing vocals of Deya Dova and a flute based excerpt from Dorisburg’s track Votiv along with tribal drumming, synthesizers, shamanic chants, other vocal material and manipulated instrumental sounds. This, combined woth Tom Visser’s intricate lighting design and an incredible company of young dancers makes for a striking and captivating theatrical experience.

Infinite was co-produced by Mercat  de les Flors, co-commissioned by Birmingham 2022 Festival, Sadler’s Wells, London and The Lowry. Supported by Arts Council England, Department of Culture of Generalitat de Catalunya ICEC, DanceXchange, Birmingham Hippodrome, Dance City, Elclimamola, El Graner and L’Animal a l’Esquena. It premiered at Mercat de les Flors, Barcelona on 21st April 2022 followed by UK and international touring. UK veunues include The Lowry, Northern Stage, Birmingham Hippodrome (BIDF & Birmingham 2022 Festivals).

A short film version of the work, comissioned by the BBC, will be available in the UK on iplayer from summer 2022.
