Portal is a series of in depth lectures and workshops lead by a curated group of international artists who are at the forefront of contemporary dance and performance creation. The aim of this series is to offer insights into the working methodologies – that lead to creation and performance – of renowned makers through the exchange of ideas and information.

Over the coming three years, Chunky Move will invite internationally acclaimed artists who have developed and explored specific methods of generating, organising or disorganising their ideas. Be it through movement research, curatorial or conceptual approaches, each Portal will offer a different way to approach the making of new work. The series is designed for dance and performance makers wanting to explore new conceptual approaches, either as a starting point for creation or as reflection and or counterpoint to their own artistic practice.
