  2. INTERIOR fundraising Campaign

    Leave a Comment

    We’re over the moon with the support we have received for INTERIOR. Thanks to many Chunky Move supporters we have raised over $30,000 and will receive a matched funding grant from Creative Partnerships Australia.

    If you would like to support the project, you can still make an end-of-financial tax deductible contribution here: 


    Our new work – INTERIOR – brings together Chunky Move Artistic Director Anouk van Dijk and New York based Australian artist Ian Strange to re-interpret the psychological interior of a house. INTERIOR consists of two parts: a physical and filmic research in an abandoned house in outer Melbourne suburbs and a live stage performance. Within the familiar interior of a suburban home, the dancers expose the emotional space of the house revealing its vulnerable and temporary nature. Ultimately, memory is all that remains, leaving our bodies as the only true home we have.
    If you would like to find out more about Ian Strange’s body of work, we encourage you to watch the beautiful ABC series Art Bites:Home:The Art of Ian Strange
