21st Century Challenges – Ian Johnston and Gary Gardiner: 43 Percent 

Tramway in a few weeks for the Unlimited Festival. 15-16 September 7pm.

Part of Tramway’s Unlimited Festival

As human beings, we are complex and impressive machines, consisting of 57% water and 43% other matter. But if we rely on a physician’s checklist to measure our human capacity, then we might all submerge and drown… 

43 Percent is a dynamic new multi-media work by Gary Gardiner and Ian Johnston in which they explore the medical and social definitions of being human.  Using dance, video, movement and spoken word, the work considers our bodies and the water contained within them, and how a medical world view might quantify, measure and sum us up – are our dancing bodies more than the sum of their parts?
43 Percent is a Tramway co-commission, following on from the company’s successful Unlimited Commission Dancer in 2014, which was presented at Southbank, FIERCE Festival, BAC, People Dancing Festival, Behaviour Festival, The Place and Edinburgh Festival Fringe 2016. 

Please let the box office know of any access needs so that we can ensure adequate provision of resources. We can pre-reserve wheelchair spaces, audio headsets or space at the side of aisles.
