The Dust We Raised


We can try to alter mosquitoes to eliminate malaria, attempt to cure cancer or guarantee your child will be blonde. Choreographer Luke Murphy examines our giant leaps forward in science and medicine – and the backs we stepped on to get there.

Quiet yet furious, sharp yet blunt, full of contradictions but starkly exposed, The Dust We Raised inhabits a haunting world of sound, film, dance and theatre where three lost souls wade through the fog – with a tempest of movement and a storm of questions.
