Chunky Move's artistic director Anouk van Dijk has taken on our shared experiences and the current time we find ourselves in with her new piece Common Ground.

An encounter between two dancers — contemporary artists Tara Jade Samaya (Chunky Move) and Richard Cilli (Sydney Dance Company) — the work will be a boundary-transcending study of the instability of the world we're living in.

In it, Van Dijk will explore the common ground that unites all of us and that can rupture and disturb our lives. Common Ground will look at how to stand firm when the ground around you is shifting. "There is an incredible sense of instability in the world — social, political, economic and environmental — this affects us on a visceral level," she says.

Common Ground will demonstrate the universality of our shared experiences, and how we manage to find unity in a world that is shook. It'll show at Chunky Move Studios from April 26 until May 5, then at The Drum Theatre in Dandenong on May 8.
