Since 1995, when he founded the Australian company Chunky Move, artistic director Gideon Obarzanek has been creating unique and unusual pieces that range from the extremely high-tech (Mortal Engine) to the charmingly low budget (I Like This) to the technologically cutting edge (Glow.) As he prepares to hand over the reins of the company to new artistic director Anouk van Dijk this July, he is saying farewell by starring in a production for the first time in ten years, the deeply personal solo show Faker. Beginning with Obarzanek sitting at a desk reading an e-mail he received from a young dancer, he roams about the stage, questions his abilities, looks back at his successes and failures, and wonders what it has all been about. Faker runs Wednesday through Sunday the next two weeks; you can find out even more about Obarzanek when he participates in a Q&A following the April 27 performance.
