CHUNKY MOVE

Fiercely original, Chunky Move has earned an enviable reputation for producing a distinct yet unpredictable brand of technology-driven and genre-defying dance performance. The company redefines what is or what can be contemporary dance. Chunky Move’s work is both diverse in form and content. In Connected, the dynamic is flipped and digital technology is side stepped in favor of pure mechanics. Teaming up with Californian artist, Reuben Margolin, Chunky Move's director and choreographer Gideon Obarzanek, animates both the body and the machine through physical connection between the dancers and Margolin's purpose-built, kinetic sculpture. In Connected it is people - athletic and agile dancers' bodies twisting and hurtling through space, as well as people in recognizable situations. To date, they have created a repertoire for the stage, as well as site specific, new-media, and installation works.

IMPORTANT: No late seating. Please arrive on time.
