Melbourne’s leading contemporary dance company Chunky Move has earned an enviable reputation for producing a distinct yet unpredictable brand of genre-defying dance performances and Two Faced Bastard provides another truly extraordinary experience.

On either side of a dividing curtain a group of performers juggle two simultaneous shows played to two opposing audiences. Each exit through the curtain becomes an entrance on the other side. There is no backstage, nowhere to get off, nowhere to hide. As one world bleeds into another a unique performance emerges, cut loose from the rules that determine a performer’s onstage/offstage life.

A cleverly staged work, Two Faced Bastard reveals our constant state of duality and capacity for treachery in the desire for individual gain. A tantalising look at two duplicitous worlds of fiction and reality, this production exposes its cast with often hilarious consequences.
