MTC + Chunky Move
Complexity of Belonging
From a long-standing and critically lauded collaboration comes a daring, politically charged work from two of dance and theatre’s most unflinching makers.
            Uniting the charged choreography and direction of Chunky Move Artistic Director, Anouk van Dijk and the text and direction of Falk Richter, Complexity of Belonging is the product of two masters at work.
            A powerful, darkly humorous exploration of identity in the age of social media, Complexity of Belonging peers into the lives of nine interconnected individuals as they grapple with the question: how and where do I belong? Nationality, gender, sexuality and history collide and fragment on stage in this audacious, theatrical exposé into the daily trials of surviving in a hyper-connected, hyper-sensitive, globalised society.
            Complexity of Belonging is a masterful take on contemporary theatre, seamlessly integrating text, movement and music to create a work of theatre that is in and of its time.
