When winter turns to spring, the upbeat of dance in the Berkshires begins to pick up. First up will be a joint presentation by Jacob’s Pillow Dance and MASS MoCA of the Australian contemporary dance company and audience favorite Chunky Move in Connected March 24 and 25 at MASS MoCA’s Hunter Center. Based in Melbourne, the company is acclaimed for dance works that merge unique visual design and “blasts of choreographic excitement” (Jack Anderson, New York Times). These daring and innovative works have garnered fans around the world, earning the company a strong reputation as “Australia’s biggest and most successful contemporary dance export” (Edinburgh International Festival). This engagement will mark Chunky Move’s first Berkshire County return since the 2007 Jacob’s Pillow Dance Festival.
