Jahman Davine is an Australian born theatre maker working between Melbourne, Australia and Berlin, Germany. Having graduated from the National Theatre Drama School. Davine’s productions walk a formal tightrope between chaos and order, using philosophy and mythology to investigate themes of social ideology, fantasy and taboo. Often containing little story, and void of modern characters, his work seeks to engage the audience’s collective cerebral and physical responses to time, space and causality composition. By counterpointing poetic text, visual art, spatial design, colour and light, theme, myth and music to the performers’ bodies, Davine aims to create a total audience experience. In this way, he endeavours to define a new form of performing arts, one which stands independently from other art forms to offer the unique possibility of an extraordinary group experience, influenced by the historic human necessity for tragic celebration, ritual, and cathartic connection.
