Chunky Move is located on the unceded lands of the Boon Wurrung and Wurundjeri people of the Kulin Nations. We respectfully acknowledge the significant contributions of Australia’s First Peoples, and are committed to supporting the continuity of culture and relationship to this land.
YIRRAMBOI festival platforms the interconnectedness and diversity of First Nations creatives, locally, nationally and internationally. A 10 day feast of mediums spanning the breadth of artistic expressions with a collective voice of resilience and evolutionary practices. Emerging, mid-career and established First Nations creatives taking back space to crack open the heart of Melbourne, revealing the hum of country beneath.
In 2023, Chunky Move presented a series of dynamic dance classes led by leading First Nations dance artists curated by Ngioka Bunda-Heath (Wakka Wakka, Ngugi, Birrpai).
Teachers included Thomas E.S Kelly, Joel Bray, Zoe Brown-Holten, Amelia O’Leary, Tyrel Dulvarie, Jasmin Sheppard, and Rheannan Port.
