We proudly launch our new Uncaged season with the North American premiere of Gideon Obarzanek’s newest work, Connected, a groundbreaking collaboration with California artist Reuben Margolin. Beginning with simple movements choreographed by Gideon and hundreds of tiny pieces fabricated by Reuben, the agile Chunky Move dancers will construct a kinetic sculpture in real time, and simple physical connections will evolve into thrillingly complex relationships.
The presentation of Chunky Move’s Connected was made possible by the MetLife Community Connections Fund of the New England Foundation for the Arts' National Dance Project. Major support for NDP is also provided by the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation with additional support from The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation.
