VICTORY OVER THE MOON (МИР) [July 2022, Chunky Move/Next Wave, Melbourne]
VICTORY OVER THE MOON is a dance around the visions that arise in moments of crisis.. when time seems to move differently, either speeding up or slowing down in unexpected ways.
Three bodies anatomize the dreams and delusions that manifest out of necessity and move into focus, momentarily rising then falling, peace and war and disbelief, but always looking for miracles in unforeseen places. In this new experimental choreographic work, co-commissioned by Next Wave and Chunky Move, Nana Biluš Abaffy and long-term collaborators Milo Love and Geoffrey Watson create a world of embodied imaginaries you are going to remember. But whatever you do, don’t press the red button.
