In Rewards for the Tribe , two of the country’s most influential and innovative dance companies, Chunky Move and Restless Dance Theatre, wrestle with the archetypes of divine geometry. Their search for idealism in art is upended by a dance of exquisite chaos.
Five dancers, with and without disability, wrestle with the archetypes of divine geometry laid out by the Old Masters. Together they bend, crumple and reorganise a Mondrian-inspired whimsical set and costumes designed by Jonathan Oxlade, that both reference and topple idealistic modernist forms. Rewards for the Tribe celebrates the imaginations of artists while embracing life’s exquisite chaos.
