ZERO

Premiered at The CUB Malthouse, Melbourne, 16 February, 1999.

Commission By:
Chunky Move, Melbourne.

Zero was a commission for Melbourne-based dance company Chunky Move as part of their Bodyparts season. It is a contemporary exploration in movement using the manipulation of self and others to present selected perspectives. This uneasy work continually censors itself, reinventing its structural identity and the individuals within it with the cold objectivity of a camera lense.
