Chunky Move: GLOW
December 3, 4
Conceived as a “biotech fiction” by Australian choreographer Gideon Obarzanek and interactive software creator Frieder Weiss, “Glow” transforms a solo dancer into a mutant figure both sensual and grotesque. As she slides and thrashes across a white floor, her form generates a constantly shifting digital habitat of projected light. Her smallest gestures are captured by an overhead tracking system, while interactive video technology creates motion graphics that shift in real time in response to her movement. The Sydney Morning Herald called the piece “lasting in its eerie intrigue.”

Founded by Gideon Obarzanek in 1995, Chunky Move is a Melbourne-based dance company that constantly seeks to redefine what contemporary dance is, or what it can be. Its works include stage productions, installations, site-specific works, and films. Chunky Move’s multitiered programming initiatives foster and support a strong and vibrant dance culture in its home city while creating critically acclaimed and popular larger productions for touring.

The performances will be held in the Curtis R. Priem Experimental Media and Performing Arts Center Studio 1 beginning at 7 and 9 p.m. Tickets are $15/$10/$5. For ticket information, go to www.empac.rpi.edu or call 276-3921.
