Yung Lung Chunky Move
Over 500 hours of content are uploaded to YouTube every minute. Different generations of humanity sink or swim in a sea of knowledge, false narratives, dog memes and viral dances. Our fleshy bodies can’t possibly process it all.
Yung Lung is a rave on Mount Olympus from Chunky Move — one of Australia’s leading contemporary dance companies for more than 25 years — and a host of collaborators from the worlds of music, design and art.
Dancers stomp on a god-like effigy by artist Callum Morton, as a barrage of online imagery manipulated by music video director Kris Moyes rains down. Sweat soaks through Perks & Mini-designed club regalia as Bosco Shaw’s lighting pulsates to the bass-heavy soundtrack of Melbourne techno experimentalist Chiara Kickdrum.
Yung Lung is a techno treatise and party prophecy in Festival Hall—one-time boxing ring, concert hall and now place of worship—a temple of the body, heart and soul. Divinity meets the dancefloor.
To celebrate the new commission, RISING collaborated with Chunky Move and iconic Melbourne label Perks and Mini to create a limited edition, oversized tote bag. Tying into the P.A.M-designed Yung Lung costumes. each bag has a washed chambray and digitally printed patch, applied at P.A.M.’s Melbourne studio, overlayed with local screen-printing. Available in two colourways, no two totes are the same. with a super-limited run of just 50.
