There are several aspects at play. Dancers from the Australian contemporary dance company Chunky Move trample a political effigy by artist Callum Morton, representing the two contrasting figures of Karl Marx and Rupert Murdoch. The dance takes place on and around a sculpture of massive heads, which sits in the middle – and is a platform for the dancers. The public looks around the sculpture from all over the place, and above the set is a halo of 12 televisions.
Dancers wear colorful club badges designed by Perks And Mini (PAM), where everything from full clothes to scraps of fabric has been deconstructed and reinvented – with some outfits made entirely of socks – all mutating and changing. adapting to their new purpose.
As viewers move freely around the dancers and the effigy, a deluge of online images manipulated by music video director Kris Moyes rains. Meanwhile, Bosco Shaw’s lighting vibrates to the rhythm of the bass-packed soundtrack of Melbourne techno experimenter Chiara Kickdrum. Apart from Chiara’s screens and soundtrack, everything is live.
