In ANTI—GRAVITY, Chunky Move Artistic Director Anouk van Dijk joins forces with internationally renowned multimedia artist Ho Tzu Nyen to explore the role of clouds as ethereal influences that disturb or heighten human existence.
Using Ho Tzu Nyen’s extensive research as a provocation for a dance work, ANTI—GRAVITY confronts gravity-bound bodies with the ephemeral, ever-changing cloud. Performers transform from celestial creatures to terrestrial warriors. As the clouds swell and dissipate, bodies are caught between monolithic stillness and fleeting elevation, becoming the vessels of our own imagination.
Uniting the refined, highly physical choreography of Anouk van Dijk and the meticulous aesthetic of Ho Tzu Nyen, ANTI—GRAVITY is an immersive performance, an evocative world inhabited by six extraordinary dancers in various depths of control and abandon.
“Highly sophisticated and fascinating in its juxtaposition of bodies in space […] Sheer determination and boundless energy of this stunning cast of performers. ★★★★”
