From the critically acclaimed Chunky Move comes Keep Everything, a unique and uninhibited fusion of dance, light, sound and image by one of Australia’s most innovative choreographers, Antony Hamilton. Featuring sound design by ARIA award-winning musicians Kim Moyes and Julian Hamilton, Keep Everything splices choreography, electronica, spoken text and improvised movement to trace human evolution from primates to robots and back again.
Performed by three extraordinary Australian dancers, Keep Everything champions the absurd and sometimes vulgar nature of the spontaneous, set to a twitching score. Hallmarked by Chunky Move’s genre-defying style, its stellar team of creators is further enhanced by the addition of Benjamin Cisterne’s lighting and Robin Fox’s powerful AV design, transforming the stage into a synchronised, pulsating backdrop of lights and smoke in a powerful sound environment.
Keep Everything has evolved intuitively with little editing. The result is a stream-of-consciousness experience that reminds us that, sometimes, it’s important to keep everything.
