Founded by Artistic Director Gideon Obarzanek in 1995, Chunky Move has earned a reputation for producing a distinct yet unpredictable brand of genre-defying dance performance. The company’s work is both diverse in form and content; to date the company has created a number of works for the stage, site specific, new-media and installation work. Chunky Move’s multi-tiered programming initiatives foster and support a strong and vibrant dance culture in its home city of Melbourne and also creates critically acclaimed and popular larger productions for touring. Recent cities toured include: New York, Hong Kong, Beirut and Barcelona. In 2008, Chunky Move received Best Dance Work for Glow and Best Visual or Physical Theatre Production for Mortal Engine at the Live Performance Australia Helpmann Awards. In 2009, Mortal Engine received an Honorary Mention in the Prix Ars Electronica awards in the Hybrid Arts category.
