Fragile Matter – Moonah

An inspiring and thrilling dramatic dance performance.


Created by internationally acclaimed Greek dance company Jukstapoz and inspired by Charlie Chaplin’s epic film The Great Dictator, Fragile Matter uses dance, theatre, storytelling and puppetry to create a unique dance-theatre experience.

This entertaining, high energy performance has been around the world, finding a political and social relevance wherever it goes. Audiences will be stirred by the poignant significance to current political and social events, and moved by the humanness brought to the characters.

Using the body as metaphor for war and unity, eight embattled dancers rally, resist and break out in a work that is both fiercely physical and intimate, with a sound score to match.
