Bringing together two Australian contemporary dance companies, Australian Dance Theatre (ADT) and Co:3 Australia, comes the Adelaide season of Objekt by Garry Stewart.
Objekt explores the objectification of humans. Commencing with a surreal and unexpected vision of bodies as aestheticized objects of art, and gradually transitioning to a sociological depiction of humans as objects of subjugation, Objekt is an engrossing journey.
Blurring the borders between visual arts and dance, Objekt plays with our perception and makes us see the human body in compelling ways that are unique, arresting and at times, confronting.
First presented in Australia in 2016, critics called it “a hypnotic pleasure to watch” and “A riveting and exciting artistic achievement reflecting quality collaboration on all levels”.
This return season sees the phenomenal dancers of ADT and Co:3 united in a newly modified iteration.
