A stunning solo performance that explores the origin of the species.
Kitt Johnson moves like a magical creature from a bygone age. Reptilian, insect-like, animalistic, human - her body changes in front of your eyes. This is the story of our evolution analysed with one fascinating body and it's unconscious memory, set to a soundscape of computer-manipulated sounds from the natural world.
Kitt Johnson came to butoh, German expressionist theatre and contemporary movement from a background in elite athletics. As a performer and choreographer she has worked with Sasha Walz and Mark Tompkins amongst others, and appeared all over the world.
‘Beyond the notion of ugly or beautiful, male or female she achieved a state of pure living existence. An intense and wonderful experience'. Dance International, Canada.
‘Rare is the choreographer who can say a great deal with very little'. New York Times
