Hailed by The Australian as the country’s best modern dance company, choreographer Gideon Obarzanek’s Chunky Move dazzles audiences with its use of site-specific installations and interactive sound and light technologies. Obarzanek’s avant-garde performances explore the >tensions between the rational world we live in and richness of our imagination.
Pioneer of performance art, Vito Acconci talks about three ground-breaking actions he staged at the Sonnabend Gallery, New York in January 1972.
“An invitation to travel, to dream, to the game from this dream in all of us since childhood that may resurface at any moment, come and upset the rational principles that guide our modern >existence.
A raft in the assault of the waves and begin the journey, crossing many materials as virtual landscapes. Lines, dots, letters, digital objects projected onto flat surfaces, weave poetic spaces that hug the body and gesture. The imagination turns opaque and solid colour to reveal the >transparency and freedom of movement, desire and the infinite in all of us.”
