Inspired by the cultural debate on genetic modiﬁcation and designer babies, it goes here now creates a dystopian world through contemporary dance. Intricate duets and delicate solos are brought to life by an original music score, and interplay with responsive projected images, to tell the narrative of innate human curiosity. Vigorous and energetic choreography is set in contrast with intricate and detailed physicality to expose fetishes, reveries and revulsions – and ask what it means to be human.

“I am fascinated by space and the body’s ability to exist in it. I am drawn to the architecture of the body as it locates and carves out moments and experiences in this space. I am committed to the strength and versatility of the body and aim to make work that pushes physical boundaries.” Maddy Wynne-Jones
