Company Chameleon is excited to present The Saturday Sessions – a new fun, physical and interactive programme of dance classes for young people, age 8 to 16, in Manchester.
In December, we were delighted to feature in a BBC Two documentary with Dame Darcey Bussell, which asked the question, can dance improve your mental health?
This Spring, we perform our newest outdoor work, Amaranthine, at Move It, the world’s biggest dance event. Here we catch up with co-creator, Navala ‘Niku’ Chaudhari, to find out more about the choreography and making of the piece.
Fresh, innovative and engaging ideas to get boys moving! We were delighted to be invited to the One Dance UK conference in November to deliver a Teacher Toolkit session on ‘Facilitating Boys Dance’.
We talk to our Dance Development Artist, Amber Calland, and find out more about taking dance into Manchester schools this Autumn.
To coincide with World Mental Health Day this Autumn, our Co-Artistic Director, Kevin Edward Turner, talks us through the creative process for Witness This, an outdoor choreography which explores his own mental health.
Over the summer, our Co-Artistic Director, Kevin, worked with young people’s mental health charity, 42nd Street, to deliver a dance and mental health project, which was filmed for the BBC and followed by world famous ballerina and Strictly Come Dancing judge, Darcey Bussell.
To create a hothouse for dance and to make Manchester more of a dancing city, our Co-Artistic Directors, Kevin and Anthony, talk about the launch and vision for our new home.
This Autumn, Company Chameleon presents the second UK tour of 10. The production, celebrating a decade of creating socially relevant dance theatre, that makes you think and makes you feel, tours nationally from 25 October to 20 November 2018.
On Thursday 13 and Saturday 15 September, we’re popping up in our home city of Manchester with a trio of free performances - and the UK premiere of Amaranthine, a magnetic short dance piece that tells the story of two people who are deeply in love, and in conflict.
