Universal Estate


Universal Estate is a world of light, sound, objects and movement; a living sculpture where retro-futurism meets contemporary nihilism. Two humans navigate an environment of strange technological objects with no known function. They meander aimlessly in a world that has left them with a seemingly never-ending collection of superseded manufactured tools and materials.

Multi-award-winning dancer and choreographer Antony Hamilton is internationally renowned for his innovative works that are playful yet profound. Universal Estate responds to a dilemma resulting from the industrial and technological revolutions of recent centuries, questioning our throw-away society, our obsession with the next latest thing and how we can find meaning in a world made up of the material things of past generations.

Presented by Arts House as part of Dance Massive 2019
