Dance to the infinite. Dance to forget. An apocalyptic rave on Mount Olympus, Yung Lung is a party prophecy for the end of days. Stand around a huge, hypercolour head, as dancers stomp wildly upon this god-like effigy where divinity meets the dance floor.  

Created by Antony Hamilton, one of Australia’s most thrilling choreographers, _Yung Lung _will pummel you with the manic physicality of arcade games like Dance Dance Revolution to the pounding soundtrack of a subterranean rave, in an intense confrontation of humanity’s obsession with digital culture.  

Featuring the bass-heavy soundtrack of Melbourne techno experimentalist Chiara Kickdrum, design by Callum Morton, costumes by P.A.M. and video by Kris Moyes, dancers lay siege to the space around you, possessed by imagery drawn from the depths of the digital universe. This marks the first Sydney tour in a decade for Melbourne’s Chunky Move, and the first under its new Artistic Director, Hamilton.  

Yung Lungs rise. Yung Lungs energise. Yung Lungs dance on the graves of visionaries past, to eat all history to the end of time.

“Chunky Move is upfront about what it wants to achieve, and partly that's the recognition of dance as an everyday artform. Something that everyone can enjoy regardless of cultural capital." – Time Out Melbourne  

 “Chunky Move has always sat in a daring, experimental place” – The Age
