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 (The Presets), 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 young Australian dancers, Keep Everything is a joyous and moving celebration of our desire to connect with one another, 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.
Hamilton uses humour and forensic attention to detail, examining the quirks and fragilities of human nature in a sexy, funny and subversive history that’s part-playful, part-animalistic and part-apocalyptic. Developed intuitively with little editing, Keep Everything is the result is a stream-of-consciousness experience that reminds us that, sometimes, it’s important to keep everything.
