Habitus | By Garry Stewart | Adelaide Festival 2016 says
The world premiere Australian Dance Theatre's latest work Habitus will be presented at the 2016 Adelaide Festival.

In Garry Stewart’s Habitus he explores the relationship between humans, our domestic world and the topographies of nature.

In this fascinating work dancers from Australian Dance Theatre reframe the logic of our engagement with domestic objects – books, ironing boards, sofas and other household paraphernalia – iconic emblems of domestic living that we rarely consider outside of their conventional function. Through placing these objects within ‘dance’ he playfully liberates the audience’s understanding of these objects and of ourselves.

What is the final destination for all of this ‘stuff’, this manufactured detritus that we have heaped onto the world? Will nature inevitably reclaim it unto itself?

Find out at the world premiere of Habitus at the Adelaide Festival Centre from 26 Feb - 5 March.

Habitus is presented by ADT and the Adelaide Festival Centre in association with the Adelaide Festival of Arts.
