Complexity of Belonging

A co-production between Chunky Move, Melbourne Theatre Company, Melbourne Festival, Brisbane Festival and Théâtre National de Chaillot

Presented by Chunky Move, Anouk van Dijk and Falk Richter with Aarhus Festival and Aarhus 2017

From a long-standing and critically lauded collaboration comes a daring, politically charged work from two of dance and theatre’s most unflinching creative talents. Uniting the charged direction of Dutch choreographer, Anouk van Dijk and the text and direction of German writer, 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 and hyperspace, 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 of the daily trials of surviving in a hyper-connected, hyper-sensitive, globalised society. 

Complexity of Belonging is a wonderful invention of contemporary theatre, seamlessly integrating text, movement, and music to create a work that is in and of its time.
