“This movement is…mesmerisingly fluid, with strong performances from James Vu Anh Pham, Niharika Senapati and Tara Jade Samaya.”

“It somehow manages to conjure an expansive, abyssal universe, ripe with narrative subtext.”

A powerful and intricate piece, Rule of Thirds brings Chunky Move’s Artistic Director Anouk van Dijk’s unique and highly physical movement style to the stage. Three dancers emerge from the darkness, meet, collide and battle an invisible force field that exists between them. All players are needed but who will lead? Be mesmerised by this daring, virtuosic performance, which celebrates perseverance, audacity and our common desire for reinvention.
Rule of Thirds is the third part in the Embodiment series, initiated by Anouk van Dijk in 2013, a trilogy of interventions between dancers, a movement score and a chosen site. The movement score is malleable and deliberately deconstructed, dismantled and stretched on each new site, affecting the performance, the meaning and the intensity of the work.
