COMPANY CHAMELEON – 10
March 3, 2018
£12 / £10 concessions £1 off for Festival Pass Holders
National Dance Award nominees, Company Chameleon rewind and fast forward in the world premiere of a new triple bill celebrating their 10th anniversary year.
With a rich mix of movement techniques and athletic yet sensitive choreography, 10 explores human and personal issues, which are familiar to all of us, showcasing Chameleon’s trademark style of creating socially relevant dance theatre that is both powerful and original.
Rites, the first major piece of work made by the company in 2007, is a male duet about masculinity, growing up and the journey from boyhood to manhood. Imprint, a new trio by Kevin Edward Turner, is unashamedly about love, romance and relationships; and Anthony Missen’s new solo, Trip, takes you into the dark arena of self-deception, exploring the line between true and false identity.
See the piece that launched Company Chameleon onto the dance scene a decade ago, alongside two new works by the Company’s founders. Inspiring and insightful, retrospective and up-to-the-minute, 10 promises to be a triple-bill that is truly of its time.
“Beautifully revealing…unforgettably good.” The Guardian
NB there will be strobe lighting during the few minutes of Imprint, the first piece in the triple-bill.
There will be a curtain raiser performed by young people who have trained with the company.
