Great,edgy performance with wonderful, inventive collaboration between dancers and sculpture---some humorous spoken segments fit in well with the theme. My only complaint was the "music"---very dissonant sound was hard to take at times---too harsh and grating to my ears.

Back in 2005, Australia’s Chunky Move debuted in San Diego with I Want to Dance Better at Parties and more recently was seen at the Wonderland Festival of International Contemporary Dance Experience. For the company’s third engagement with ArtPower!, Chunky Move teams up with California artist Reuben Margolin to animate body and machine using a weblike moving sculpture. Beginning with simple movements that evolve into complex structures, athletic and agile dancers twist and hurtle through space to construct a vast sculpture in real time.
There is a post-performance discussion with the artists.
