Mass MoCA, Hunter Center

Australia's leading contemporary dance company, Chunky Move, presents their newest work Connected, a collaboration of choreographer Gideon Obarzanek and visual artist Reuben Margolin who is known for large kinetic sculptures that move and morph. In Connected, the airborne sculpture made of wood, recycled plastic, paper, and steel is built in front of us as the dance unfolds, and has been described by dance critic Deborah Jowitt as "the most compelling presence onstage."

The performance builds in momentum as dancers twist and hurtle through space to a powerful and haunting electronic score. Chloe Smethurs of Dance Magazine describes the choreographic variety: "From kaleidoscopic patterns to frenetic, body-flinging chaos, from simple walking to a mellifluous duet of action and reaction, the movement vocabulary…is ever-changing."

Tickets: $39 premium / $29 orchestra / $25 mezzanine / $10 Kids under 16

To order tickets, please call the Mass MoCA Box Office at 413-662-2111, between the hours of 11am and 5pm.
