" An energetic reflection on childhood."
— THE AGE MELBOURNE
It Sounds Silly enters the world as we saw it as children. How we understood the operations and functions of the body, machines and the universe. Through dance, sound and video the performance looks at childhood memories of first time experiences. The premiere season of It Sounds Silly was presented at City of Melbourne’s SIGNAL, an arts studio dedicated to young people. Twenty four young performers and four of Melbourne’s most talented young professional contemporary dancers shared their stories that have made them the people they are today. The latest season saw Chunky Move working with Frankston Arts Centre, young performers from the Frankston area, four professional contemporary dancers plus four dancers from Victoria’s pre-professional dance company Yellow Wheel. It Sounds Silly was performed twice on Friday 29 August 2014 at Wells Street Plaza in Frankston as part of the Anywhere Theatre Festival.
