An intricate and colourful duet, exploring the space created by the pandemic and an extraordinary space in time. Following their spectacular debut at Spraoi 2019, Company Chameleon return with an extraordinary new show, “Void”.
Company Chameleon started when Anthony Missen and Kevin Edward Turner met at Trafford Youth Dance Theatre in the mid-1990s. Two ordinary lads from Manchester, they shared an ambition to dance professionally, and after graduating travelled and worked with some of the world’s most innovative dance companies and choreographers.
In 2007 the realised their ambition to set up their own dance company – and Company Chameleon was born. Today, the company tours internationally, staging over 50 indoor and outdoor performances every year. As a result, they have introduced thousands of young people, from countries all over the world, to a different side of dance and movement.
A male and female duet, Void explores the space created by the pandemic, and what has moved into that space – both good and bad. Responding to the experiences, thoughts and feelings of the artists and a group of young people in Manchester, Void explores the rich tapestry of emotions and reactions to covid and lockdown.
With varying energy and pace, and a rainbow of different dance styles and influences, Void takes you on a journey, which creates a chance to reflect, digest and process your own thoughts and feelings during this time. Through intricate and colourful choreography, and Chameleon’s unique and athletic dance style, Void draws you in through movement, and invites you to pause, and think again about an extraordinary space in time.
