Chunky Move is excited to announce the latest commission in its Next Move series – Miss Universal by Atlanta Eke
One of the most exciting makers in Australia, dancer and choreographer Atlanta Eke creates an immersive performance that questions the possibility for universality within contemporary social structures.
Atlanta, joined by dancers Annabelle Balharry, Chloe Chignell and Angela Goh, will journey through a landscape of images, sculpture and transformative material created with visual artist Claire Lambe, accompanied by the captivating live music of Fountain collaborator Daniel Jenatsch. Lighting designer Matthew Adey of House of Vnholy, completes the creative team.
This is Atlanta’s second work for Chunky Move. Her first, Fountain, described as “stupendously witty and utterly unexpected” (Arts Hub), was a short work created for last year’s Next Move program It Cannot Be Stopped.
Miss Universal opens 3 December for a limited run of ten shows at the Chunky Move Studios.
