    AN ACT OF NOW
    Created by Anouk van Dijk

    Presented by Melbourne Festival and Chunky Move in association with Arts Centre Melbourne.

    There are over seven billion people living on the planet today. With the world shifting socially, politically and economically at an unprecedented rate, how do we as a race, as a nation and as a community, manage to coexist?

    A glasshouse stands isolated -- smoke its only visible inhabitant. In a moment of precise, dynamic movement, the veil of smoke is broken. Eight dancers fill the space, drawn to, yet confined by its boundaries. Who will lead? Who will follow? As the balance of power shifts, who will flourish, and ultimately, who will survive?

    Presenting the iconic Sidney Myer Music Bowl in an audacious new light, this production 
has audiences seated on the stage itself. Each individual will watch and listen intimately in on headphones, as the footfalls and reactions of dancers meld with a quietly pulsing score.

    Bringing together an extraordinary creative team including Marcel Wierckx (composition), Anna Cordingley (costumes) and Niklas Pajanti (lighting), An Act of Now is an arresting premiere from the mind of Anouk van Dijk.
