Chunder Chat is a live storytelling event co-presented by cinematographer Cmos le and Actor Matt Young (TBS’s WRECKED, original Australian cast of THE PRODUCERS). The concept is a hybrid between the two popular shows of each artist Chat&Chow (part of Anywhere Festival 2020) and The Story Chunder ( a weekly event at BackDock Arts in Brisbane’s Fortitude Valley). In these sessions, there will be 5 storytellers who will tell an unbelievable true story from their lives, 10 minutes max, based on the chosen theme. These storytellers come from different diaspora communities in Australia and will discuss topics that focus on identity and the cultural landscape of Australia. The aim of these sessions is to provide a platform for all guests to share their opinions and feel empowered to influence and shape the Australian identity, creating an authentic Australian hybrid of cultures.
(Audiences are encouraged to tip the storytellers in our “Chunder Bucket”, and those tips will be split among the storytellers)
