What if a dance supergroup from the future told you to forget what you knew about the laws of physics and took you on a journey to the stars? In the chaos of a universe born from the big bang, a planet took form. This planet became like a mother to all manner of life that teemed and thrived on her surface. On this world humanity came into being, eventually stood on two legs, fashioned wings out of longing for the sky, and went on to depart the land of its birth, setting out for the vast reaches of space. This is the journey of life as we know it. Representing a new artistic challenge for Japanese performing arts company, enra, Voyager is a concept show in which each piece is interconnected. To date enra’s productions have been presented in an omnibus-style arrangement of different pieces. Voyager has been composed as a cohesive production with minute attention to the details of each aspect of its interpretation. As the title suggests, the story is a journey into the limitless reaches of space, a theme to which enra only alluded in their last production Proxima but now endeavours to realise more beautifully and expressively than ever before.
