Chunky Move is a vital cultural asset for Melbourne and beyond.

Throughout our 29-year legacy, we have enthralled, captivated and immersed audiences into new worlds. We have also launched and cultivated the careers of many of Australia’s most esteemed choreographers and dance artists.

We are cultural leaders for dance in Australia.

Our vast breadth of work reflects the evolution of contemporary dance in Australia and continues to inform the future of our artform. Our program allows audiences to imagine and co-create alternative futures.

The arts are not self-supporting in Australia. We rely on philanthropic funding and the generosity of supporters, like you,  to survive and thrive. By supporting Chunky Move as a donor, you can be part of our legacy, breathing life into our programs, investing in the artform of contemporary dance and laying a strong foundation for our artists and community.

Your support helps secure a bright future for Australian dance.

A donation of any size would be immensely appreciated and will go directly to supporting our ambitious programs and the vitality of Australian dance.
