Practice Lab

Practice Lab is an exciting new addition to Chunky Move’s annual program, offering participants a rare opportunity to engage in the practice and choreographic methodologies of Chunky Move Artistic Director, Antony Hamilton.

Antony’s broad experience as a dancer and choreographer has roots in classical ballet, post-modern contemporary dance, and global street dance originating from North America. He was appointed Chunky Move Artistic Director in 2019 and has since premiered critically lauded new works including 2019’s epic Token Armies and most recently 4/4 which will tour to six European venues in Nov/Dec 2024.

Practice Lab 2024

Practice Lab is a weeklong workshop intensive, offering rare insight into Antony’s intricate counting system. Participants will:

  • Take part in daily contemporary dance technique masterclasses.
  • Devise complex choreographic sequences utilising the signature staging decks from 4/4.
  • Workshop bespoke choreographic techniques influenced by Antony’s unique mathematical approach to movement composition.

Don’t miss this valuable opportunity to learn from one of Australia’s most influential and internationally recognised contemporary choreographers.
