Complexity of Belonging
Drama, Dance
Born from the long-standing and critically lauded collaboration between Chunky Move Artistic Director Anouk van Dijk and influential playwright and director Falk Richter, Complexity of Belonging is a daring, politically charged work from two of dance and theatre’s most unflinching makers.
A powerful, darkly humorous exploration of identity in the age of social media, Complexity of Belonging peered into the lives of nine interconnected individuals as they grappled with the question: how and where do I belong? Nationality, gender, sexuality and history collided and fragmented on stage in this audacious theatrical exposé into the daily trials of surviving in a hyper-connected, hyper-sensitive, globalised society.
Complexity of Belonging was a co-production between Chunky Move, Melbourne Theatre Company, Melbourne Festival, Brisbane Festival and Théâtre National de Chaillot.
