Mortal Engine

"Mortal Engine" is an incredible performance by Australian dance group Chunky Move. Their recent award-winning is directed by Gideon Obarzanek (choreographer), the amazing visuals from laser and video images were designed by Robin Fox and also the expressive sound, composed by Ben Frost, which adds further sensorial experience to the audiences.
Chunky Move’s work constantly seeks to redefine what is or what can be contemporary dance within an ever-evolving Australian culture. The Company’s work is both diverse in form and content; to date the Company has created a number of works for the stage, site specific, new-media and installation work. See more;

Mortal Engine is a dance-video-music-laser performance using movement and sound responsive projections to portray an ever-shifting, shimmering world in which the limits of the human body are an illusion. Crackling light and staining shadows represent the most perfect or sinister of souls. Kinetic energy fluidly metamorphoses from the human figure into light image, into sound and back again. Choreography is focused on movement of unformed beings in an unfamiliar landscape searching to connect and evolve in a constant state of becoming. Veering between moments of exquisite cosmological perfection and grotesque evolutionary accidents of existence, we are driven forward by the reality of permanent change.
