SOMA is a dance theatre work that inquires into the notion of an embodied past, considering cultural, social and personal histories and how they influence our present moment. How does the body act as archive? How do our relative histories shape our habitual or performed physicality? How does our physicality in the present shape our memories of the past and intuitions about the future? Conceived by choreographer/dancer Ogemdi Ude (USA) and composer/sound artist Jack Palmer (Melb), SOMA uses sound and movement as analogy to challenge performers and audiences alike to investigate the stories that bring us into our bodies.

Created and performed by Ogemdi Ude

in collaboration with Talia Rothstein and Lay the Mystic

Live music composed and performed by Jack Palmer
