Dance,Technology, and Space

December 18, 2009 Leave a comment

I came across this company while I was surfing the web to see what’s going on in the dance community outside of OSU. The company is called Chunky Move and I took this quote from their website:

Chunky Move’s work constantly seeks to redefine what is or what can be contemporary dance within an ever-evolving Australian culture.

The way that they blend lighting and video is inspiring because every aspect seems like a necessity. Sometimes when technology is incorporated into dance, one or the other seems out of place or unnecessary. But Chunky Move makes everything congeal; it doesn’t appear as if it’s a dance/video/lighting performance. They also play with space by doing site specific work and building different spacial configurations (such as a tilting oval). Below are excerpts from Mortal Engine.
