Chunky Move x Romance Was Born
Melbourne’s leading contemporary dance company has joined forces with Australia’s much-loved fashion label to create a cross-genre collaboration drawing inspiration from the sensibilities of artist Samuel Hodge’s work for The Golden Promise, the SS20 collection from Romance Was Born. Worlds collide in The Golden Promise with an enjoyably ambiguous push and pull between abstraction and figuration, memories and the future.
Chunky Move Artistic Director Antony Hamilton, working in response to site and collection, offers a durational creation across the evening for three dancers, within a bespoke space in the Melbourne Museum. The dancers find choreographic and sculptural language with found materials, reflecting the interwoven nature of body and environment. They undertake a kaleidoscopic metamorphosis, as the action of dressing and undressing fully exploits the range of the collection.
