Our friends at MAYK present an award-winning collaboration between Jaz Woodcock-Stewart and Morgann Runacre-Temple; Civilisation is an experiment in theatrical realism and contemporary dance. 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. From the creator behind critically acclaimed Lands, Civilisation is a sideways look at the untheatrical reality of loss. Music by ABBA and Bach.
