At the heart of the series is a curiosity for form. As a collection of works The Curiosities looks at the architecture of the human body - its intricate structure and evolution, and physical and emotional complexities.
The Curiosities is a full length performance in collaboration with leading scientists, new media artists and dancers. Inspired by the processes of biological development and evolution, The Curiosities evokes the feeling of a surreal natural history museum, where the body is presented as a specimen for scrutiny - homo sapiens, exquisitely adapted but curious at it fringes, fragile and flawed, ever-evolving.
