Chunky Move’s 247 Days

As part of the 2013 Dance Massive Festival, Chunky Move’s 247 Days poses questions such as how do we view the world, and how does the world view us? The dramatic dance piece challenges the audience to examine the importance of the individual.

Six dancers struggle with self-perception, confessing their fears and anxieties – tangled between awkward expressions and gestures, submerged in fluid and contorted dance. Pushing through barriers, each performer displays uninhibited movements exposing the nakedness of their threatened reality.

Michael Hankin’s minimalist set design was appropriately partnered with focused lighting that emphasised the sheer size of the malleable wall of mirrors. Each of the 48 mirrored panels is manipulated by the performers, representing the shifting of Australian landscape. The arresting composition and sound design by Marcel Wierckx createa a tense and heart pounding soundtrack.

247 Days is a work that forces the audience to reflect upon themselves while questioning the very thought of existence.

247 Days is showing at the Merlyn Theatre, The Malthouse until 23 March.
