Dance in Prisons

11 October 2018

In partnership with Odd Arts, Company Chameleon perform Of Man And Beast in UK prison settings for the first time.

Back in September 2017, Chameleon were invited to take dance into Barton Moss Secure Unit, a 20-place secure unit for vulnerable young offenders in Greater Manchester and Wymott Prison, a Category C prison in Lancashire with two unique performances of our outdoor dance production, Of Man And Beast.

The performances were facilitated by Odd Arts, a Manchester based organisation who use applied theatre and creative arts to address and explore challenging issues with vulnerable and hard to reach groups.
