Dance Co-Production

A collaboration between Chunky Move and Californian artist Reuben Margolin, combining dance, sculpture and digital technology. Beginning with simple movements and hundreds of tiny pieces, the dancers build their performance while they construct the vast sculpture in real time. During the performance, these basic elements and simple physical connections quickly evolve into complex structures and relationships.
