Excessive Human Collective presents Post Truth Whatever an inter disciplinary live dance theatre performance which challenges us to look at how we decipher fact from fiction in a post-truth world.
Excessive Human Collective’s impressive ensemble of female dancers combine seamlessly with projections, live and recorded text and a brand-new electronic composition to create a world where fact and fiction blur and anything can become reality.
Post Truth Whatever explores hyper normalisation, political double speaks and how we engage with digital tools to access information. The work presents 3 female performers as they create and broadcast propaganda in a fictional world which is eerily similar to our own. We watch as they slip in and out of control of the hegemonic narrative they are trying desperately to weave.
The physical language employed is complex, virtuosic and rigorous in its interpretation of the theme.
Post Truth Whatever has been created with funding from Arts Council England alongside commissioning support from Swindon Dance. The work’s creation has been supported by Exeter Phoenix, Dance in Devon, Yorkshire Dance, Northern School of Contemporary Dance and Dance United Yorkshire.
