Prehension Blooms

Company: Neon Dance
Running time: 1h 00min approx
Age recommendation: 10+

Prehension Blooms explores relationships and themes of companionship and loneliness; set in a distant future and ancient past—an alien world of sand where robot creatures lurk underfoot.

Conceived by choreographer and director Adrienne Hart, acclaimed for her previous Neon Dance works (Empathy, Puzzle Creature), Prehension Blooms features specially made, insect-like robots, named by the team as ‘hōki-mon’ (rake monsters), designed and built by Bristol Robotics Lab in collaboration with award-winning visual artist Ana Rajcevic.

The weave of dance and movement between the hōki-mon, dancers and the audience is presented with an original score by composer Sebastian Reynolds, whose cinematic, electronic soundscapes help transport audiences to another time and place.
