Heroes, icons, imagined worlds and censored dreams. We relentlessly create, monitor and edit our own image in response to an abundance of references and influences. In a hyperconscious world, how do we define ourselves?
Chunky Move – Victoria’s flagship contemporary dance company – presents the world premiere of L U C I D, an intimate work for two performers, multiple cameras and a screen, which interrogates how we imagine and reconstruct our identities.
Following Chunky Move Artistic Director Anouk van Dijk’s latest critically acclaimed works Complexity of Belonging (2014) and Depth of Field (2015), L U C I D sees two performers travel to places where they can be all that they desire, fear or censor. Shapeshifting in and out of other people’s skins, they confront themselves in reflections of others. L U C I D reveals the many faces we present to the world, a culmination of the carefully crafted or those released by fearless abandon.
