Presented by Malthouse Theatre & Chunky Move
The change of light over an hour is a movement in time. A chance meeting in the street switches our focus in a blink. We experience these phase shifts every day, but they pass by without lasting notice.
Malthouse Theatre and Chunky Move invite you to an outdoor performance event – a playful and poetic interaction between three dancers and a city. Amidst the performance, as the city changes tempo, awareness of everyday life shifts to reveal the unseen.
Created by Artistic Director Anouk van Dijk and performed by Chunky Move dancers James Vu Anh Pham, Tara Jade Samaya and Niharika Senapati, Depth of Field sets Van Dijk’s refined aesthetic in an urban environment, creating a new coalescence between space, the city and choreography.
Concept, Choreography & Direction: Anouk van Dijk

“Depth of Field offers pure, abstract movement, but movement with strong emotion; fear, loss, curiosity and brutality all eventually rise to the surface, largely through the sheer determination and boundless energy of this stunning cast of performer”.
