Depth of Field / is summoned from the twilight in a cascade of simultaneous realities and chance encounters.

The change of light over an hour is a movement in time. A chance meeting in the street switches our focus in a blink. We experience these phase shifts every day, but they pass by without notice.

Malthouse Theatre and Chunky Move invite you to an outdoor performance event – a playful and poetic interaction between three dancers and a city. Amidst the performance, as daylight blends into darkness and the city changes tempo, awareness of everyday life / shifts to reveal the unseen.

Chunky Move feels, excitingly, like a celebration and exploration of current dance practice in all its complex forms.
