In development


U>N>I>T>E>D is an exhilarating new dance work in the canon of Artistic Director Antony Hamilton’s ‘speculative future’ performances. In collaboration with the prodigal sons of Balinese experimental techno, Gabber Modus Operandi (GMO), and globally renowned animatronic puppetry company Creature Technology Co, U>N>I>T>E>D explores ‘machine mysticism’ and the persistence of spirituality in a Post-Industrial Digital Age.

This new collaboration draws on GMO’s influences of jathilan (Javanese ritualised trance-dance), gabber, dangdut koplo (Indonesian folk music), Chicago footwork, grind core and noise music. These integrate with Hamilton’s ongoing investigation of choreography augmented by technologies both ancient and contemporary, bringing the flesh into spiritual communion with the machine.
