Chunky Move presents I Like This by Antony Hamilton and Byron Perry as part of The Next Move series.

WORLD PREMIERE 20-29 November 2008 Chunky Move Studios Melbourne, Australia

CONCEPT A room of objects wait patiently in stasis for a purpose, a beginning. Byron Perry and Antony Hamilton's new work I Like This is a journey of two men who embark on an unusual creative project; to design an environment, attempt to make sense of it, and begin to control it. As these two director/choreographers appear on stage creating the work at the same time as it is being performed we watch a show and simultaneously, the making of it. Intimately engaging, I Like This balances between detailed sophistication and delightful mischief. It's often comic absurdity, reveals our limited capacity to be able to geniuinely communicate to one another and also control or even fully understand our surroundings.

The Next Move, is a series of performances created by the next generation of Australian dance makers and presented by Chunky Move. The Next Move is designed to bridge the divide between young choreographers making small independent work and more established choreographers running their own organisations or engaged with larger commissions. Drawing on its experience nurturing and producing a range of exciting new work, Chunky Move is in a unique and important position to take the next step forward and produce a series of new commissions.
