Chunky Move's Yung Lung Returns

New dates announced

Wed 17 November

Stomping on history while raving to a new dawn. A dance for the digital age. Chunky Move finally premieres Yung Lung this summer.

Over 500 hours of content are uploaded to YouTube every minute. Different generations of humanity sink or swim in a sea of knowledge, false narratives, dog memes and viral dances. Our fleshy bodies can’t possibly process it all.

Yung Lung is a rave on Mount Olympus from Chunky Move—one of Australia’s leading contemporary dance companies for more than 25 years—and a host of collaborators from the worlds of music, design and art.

Dancers stomp on a god-like effigy by artist Callum Morton, as a barrage of online imagery manipulated by music video director Kris Moyes rains down. Sweat soaks through Perks & Mini-designed club regalia as Bosco Shaw’s lighting pulsates to the bass-heavy soundtrack of Melbourne techno experimentalist Chiara Kickdrum.

Yung Lung is a techno treatise and party prophecy, and you can be part of it with Chunky Move's new run of dates in Sydney and Melbourne.
