Eye on: Chunky Move

Contemporary dance has been taken by storm by an unusual and mind-bending dance company by the name of Chunky Move. Formed in 1995, Chunky Move is just now catching the eye of worldwide dance critics and audiences. This innovative dance company has included original stage works taking technology and lighting based pieces to the next level.

Chunky Move
Based in Australia, the company’s works include a diverse and extraordinary inventory of delights. Works includes I Want to Dance Better at Parties, Arcade, Closer, Singularity and Tense Dave which won the Bessie Award for Choreography back in 2005. Earlier awards have included a Mo award for best choreography in 1999 for Bonehead and they’ve also took home two Melbourne Green Room Awards for best concept and choreography.

One of their newest works Glow takes a type of new-media installation work and creates an intriguing pattern with light, movement and body heat. It takes humor, dreamscape, and virtuosity to another height. It is a memorable and exciting venture fusing technology and movement into a poetic journey for all to absorb.

Excerpts from Glow

Artistic director Gideon Obarzanek, formerly of the Sydney Dance Company and Queensland Ballet, has created works for many companies before coming to define his own. He has always been quite diverse in his subject matter, lighting, installations and site-specific pieces as well as film. In 1996-1997 Gideon received the Inaugural Dance Award as well as the Prime Minister’s Young Creative Fellowship Award for “outstanding achievement” in choreography. And recently, Obarzanek’s film work Dance like Your Old man won best short documentary at the 2007 Intl Film Fest in Melbourne.
