AMOROUS PLAYLIST (2019)
Longtime collaborators Social Growl Dance and Toronto Singer/Songwriter Blunt Chunks reunite for Amorous Playlist, a darkly romantic dance creation and live concert experience. The playlist takes inspiration from themes of love and heartbreak, lust, loss and sensuality. In addition to listening to the playlist, the audience watches it too. Blunt Chunks shares the stage with six performers, a group of sad lovers obsessed with love and the ecstasy and wounds it elicits.
