DONATE SO WE CAN CREATE

Join us as we embark on an exciting new project that investigates our personal relationship to ‘home’, our connection to everyday architecture and to the traces we leave behind.
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.
This year we have been granted the Plus1 matched giving program from Creative Partnerships Australia to support the creative development of INTERIOR, which means that they will match dollar for dollar all donations received before May 19. Your $50 donation will turn into $100, $150 into $300 etc. and for those who have already contributed, your new gift will also qualify for additional matched funds. With the end-of-financial year only a couple of months away, it’s the perfect time to make a tax-deductible contribution to support a vibrant Melbourne arts scene.
We need to raise $30,000, which will become $60,000, to bring this work to life.
