In May 2019, a panel of scientists voted to classify the age we are living in as a new geological epoch — the Anthropocene. Human-driven changes to the earth’s systems are so great that we have shifted from being inhabitants, to becoming a geological force directly impacting on the planet. This Friday Late, experience dance which softens the industrial and questions productivity. Find out how human-enhancement technology challenges our perceptions of the ‘natural’, and question what an obsession with houseplants reveals about our transient and precarious times.
