Chunky Move's Yung Lung Returns
New dates announced
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.
YUNG LUNG 2022
- Carriagworks, Sydney Festival—20—23 January 2022

To celebrate the new commission, RISING collaborated with Chunky Move and iconic Melbourne label Perks and Mini to create a limited edition, oversized tote bag, tying into the P.A.M-designed Yung Lung costumes.
This project was commissioned through RISING’s A Call to Artist initiative, a program supported by Creative Victoria, City of Melbourne and Besen Family Foundation.
This project is supported by the Victorian Government through Creative Victoria; by the Australian Government through the Australia Council for the Arts, its arts funding and advisory body and the City of Melbourne through its Arts and Creative Investment Partnership Program.
