Celebrating International Dance Day at Chunky Move

To recognise the universality and power of our art every year International Dance Day is celebrated on April 29th. To mark this great occasion we came up with the top five best ways for you to celebrate today! 

1)  See a dance performance

What better way to celebrate dance than to see your favourite dancers performing on stage. Our evocative duet Common Ground is performed by Richard Cilli and Tara Jade Samaya and is a choreographic game of chess where engrained rules are upturned by unexpected moves. Book your tickets for performances up to 5 May here. 

Stephanie Lake is presenting her new work Replica at Northcote Town Hall and you can catch this incredible performance on International Dance Day! Find out more and book tickets here.

2) Ask questions 

Do you have a burning question that you’d love to ask our the team behind Common Ground?

Join performers Tara Jade Samaya and Richard Cilli, with Artistic Director Anouk van Dijk for our Q&A following the performance on 1 May, moderated by the Wheeler Centre’s Emily Sexton. This Q&A will answer your questions and give you all the insider details about how a new work is brought to life. Book here.
