A triple-bill that is both retrospective and up-to-the-minute, 10 features Rites, the male duet that launched Company Chameleon onto the dance scene over a decade ago, alongside two new works by the Company’s Co-founders: Imprint by Kevin Edward Turner and Trip by Anthony Missen.
Co-Artistic Director, Kevin Edward Turner, says, “10 is a rich production with lots to get your teeth into and with something to engage everyone. The works are very different and work together to create a delightful feast for the eye, mind and heart in a whole manner of ways. You will laugh, gasp, and be moved as the evening takes you on a journey that will engage and move you.”
Co-Artistic Director, Anthony Missen, adds, “What is great about the evening, is you get to see mine and Kevin’s collaborative and individual choreographic voices. There’s a huge range of flavours and emotions in the show, giving you something that makes you sit forward in your seat and something for you to take away and chew on after the show.”
Opening with Imprint, Kevin Edward Turner’s choreography, the first piece performed in the production explores love, romance and relationships and the imprint they leave on us. Next on the bill is Anthony Missen’s solo, Trip, which takes audiences into the dark arena of self-deception.
The second half of the show is dedicated to Rites, the company’s first major work and the piece that launched the company on to the dance scene a decade ago.
Kevin says: “Rites is an excellent example of mine and Anthony’s collaborative work. It is also the piece that many people we know have continued to comment on (and study) over the years.”
Anthony says, “A lot of mine and Kevin’s personal and shared history is contained within it, and also many ingredients that we’ve gone on to develop and which have become part of what people know us for artistically.”
The cast of 10 includes Kevin Edward Turner, Company Dancers, Juliana Javier and Theo Fapohunda, and dance artist, David Colley.
