12 - 14 March 2021

Her Majesty's Theatre, Adelaide

World Premiere


Presented as a part of the Adelaide Festival, and following on from The Beginning of NatureNorth/South and The Circadian CycleSupernature is the next work in Garry Stewart’s award-winning ‘Nature Series’, his choreographic investigation into the rhythms, cycles and movement of the natural world.

Eschewing dystopian depictions of nature, the overarching tone of Supernature is one of awe and wonder. It reflects on the unceasing and audacious creativity of nature. Conjuring up an otherworldly space, the stage becomes host to the interplay between the evolution of the human body and the natural world.

Supernature references ideas on ‘transhumanism’ as a springboard into contemporary mythologies around the potential future of our species. Stewart decentres the stability of the Vitruvian man and our perception of what it means to be ‘human’ by collapsing the divide between the anthropomorphic and zoomorphic. In the age of the Anthropocene, Supernature manifests as a surreal, important and ultimately awe-inspiring depiction of the relationship between humans and our natural surrounds.
