Company Chameleon - 10
Featuring three dance pieces, which use engaging and athletic choreography to explore human and personal issues, 10 showcases Chameleon’s trademark style of creating socially relevant dance theatre that is powerful and original.
National Dance Award nominees, Company Chameleon rewind and fast forward in the world premiere of a new triple bill celebrating their 10th anniversary year.
Featuring three dance pieces, which use engaging and athletic choreography to explore human and personal issues, 10 showcases 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 growing up on the journey from boyhood to manhood, exploring the question what does it mean to be a man? Imprint, a new trio by Kevin Edward Turner, is unashamedly about love, romance and relationships, and the imprint they leave on us; 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 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.
Opening the show will be ‘Quest’, an exceptional curtain raiser performed by Chameleon Youth and choreographed by Company Chameleon. Originally performed as part of Company Chameleon’s sold-out site specific production ‘Illuminate’ at Manchester Central Library, ‘Quest’ is based on the idea of heroes and how we build them up and ultimately like to see them fall.
