A return to the tribal, where rhythm takes over the performers and the viewer.

After the success of duet ZERO, Humanhood brings for the first time unto the stage: Torus, a production for five exceptional dancers that morph into stunning live breathing compositions.

Merging Humanhood’s unique synergy and powerful liquid movement into a tribal hurricane of effortless fluidity where bodies move as one on stage.

Founded and directed by Rudi Cole and Júlia Robert Parés, Humanhood’s work stems from a fascination with the complexities of Western physics, astrophysics and Eastern mysticism exploring the deep connections which lie between these seemingly abstract fields. For this production, Rudi and Julia interacted with Taiwanese percussion group Ten Drum, at their base in Tainan city, and brought the tribal and earthly sounds to fuse with Birmingham based electronic duo EIF, creating an entrancing original sound score.
