“James perfectly expressed in movement the title of his solo. Finely built yet strong, and very flexible, Pham moved with a continuous flow.” Dancehub Magazine
“Pham gave 200% in his solo. His energy was breathtaking” XS Entertainment
Choreographed by Chunky Move Artistic Director Anouk van Dijk, gentle is the power is an exploration of contained power. Created specifically for, and with, dancers James Vu Anh Pham and Niharika Senapati, gentle is the power merges Van Dijk’s physically challenging movement language with Pham and Senapati’s refined virtuosity.
gentle is the power was first performed at the Brisbane SOLO Festival of Dance (2014) by James Vu Anh Pham, then as a duo Nihairka Senapati as part of the SummerSalt Outdoor Arts Festival in Southbank (2015).
In 2015 gentle is the power toured to Singapore as part of M1 CONTACT Contemporary Dance Festival. Chunky Move’s participation in the festival was supported by the Australian Government through the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade.
