Chunky Move creates performance works that challenge existing choreographic forms. The company presents in diverse venues and incorporates a range of media. The company's marketing strategy aims to expand and consolidate its audience base, to establish a strong public identity, to educate, and to promote dialogue within the dance community.

The documentary was designed to promote the leadership of Gideon Oberzanek, his style and processes of making performance. The contemporary aesthetic implicitly attracts young audiences. Like all companies the desire to expand audiences was paramount. The CD ROM was developed to educate dancers and teachers in the process of making work. By accessing this market the company could consolidate its audience base and develop dialogue between active participants in the dance industry.
