Chunky Move launches its 9th Next Move performance season

This September, Chunky Move is excited to present its ninth Next Move performance season, an initiative unique in scale in Australia that commissions new work, supporting and nurturing the next generation of leading dance makers.

In a world-premiere double bill, choreographer Melanie Lane presents Remake, and choreographer Jo Lloyd in collaboration with performance maker Nicola Gunn present Mermermer – two works born from unique collaborations and a shared fascination for the histories embedded in another’s body.

With REMAKE, Melanie Lane embarks on a long awaited collaboration with former Australian Ballet soloist Juliet Burnett. Through narrative, space and technology, REMAKE negotiates tradition, discipline and the future of the highly trained classical body.

If you were one of the last two humans on earth, what would you talk about? Created and performed by Jo Lloyd and Nicola Gunn, Mermermer is simultaneously a physical and verbal conversation, a new mode of performance that explores saturation, social encounters and an augmented reality that oscillates somewhere between high art and entertainment.

The season runs from Thursday 8 September (Preview) to Saturday 17 September at the Chunky Move studios, Southbank VIC.


Ticket Prices: Adult $35 / Under 30 $30 / Concession $28/ Preview $25

Chunky Move’s Next Move program is supported by Daniel and Danielle Besen.
