The Arches at St Stephen’s presents Dudendance Theatre. Clea Wallis/Paul Rous.

Stark and compelling contemporary dance that uses a haunting, physical language to question the evolutionary process and what it is that makes us human. In Spaceman, a lone other-worldly survivor undergoes a series of sculptural mutations, from prowling animal and robotic machine to alien shape-shifting force. 

Devised by performer Paul Rous, the movement and title of Spaceman were inspired by astronautical simulation excercises and the psychological aspect of space travel.


It was performed to great acclaim at Arches Live 2008.
