Chunky MoveCommon Ground
As one of Australia’s premier contemporary dance companies, Chunky Move constantly seeks to redefine what is or what can be contemporary dance in an ever-evolving Australian culture. Their work is diverse in form and content, encompassing productions for the stage, site specific, new-media and installation work.
Chunky Move has an enviable reputation of producing a distinct yet unpredictable brand of genre-defying dance performance. Using contemporary Australian culture, social commentary and the tension between community and individual as its springboard, their artistic vision has been driven by an investigation into the multi-faceted possibilities of the body and its relationship to place, context and environment. The Company’s programming initiatives nurture and underpin a strong and vibrant dance culture in our home city of Melbourne and create critically acclaimed and popular productions of scale for presentations nationally and internationally.
