Project Description

Manchester-based producing and touring dance company Company Chameleon presents over fifty indoor and outdoor performances a year.  It was founded by Anthony Missen and Kevin Edward Turner, and draws on their individual experiences to tackle human and personal issues in performance, frequently exploring themes of masculinity and male relationships.

On the road in 2019 are:

The Shadow (2019) is Company Chameleon’s new theatre piece which will premiere in November 2019.  Choreographed by Anthony Missen and with a cast of twelve, The Shadow delves into one of the great philosophical themes of our time, the activation of unconscious desires.

Amaranthine (2010-2018) is Company Chameleon‘s first male-female duet.  Choreographed by Kevin Turner and Navala Chaudhari, Amaranthine explores the timeless cycle of conflict and resolution between a woman and a man.

Witness This (2017) is Chameleon‘s latest outdoor work by Kevin Turner, which draws on his experience of bi-polar illness.

Of Man And Beast (2015) is Chameleon’s five man show for outdoor settings.  With choreography by Anthony Missen, Of Man And Beast is an exploration of camaraderie and threat, and supremely physical.

Hands Down (2014) is the final duet in Chameleon‘s outdoor trilogy, using acrobatics and dance to chart the hierarchy and boundaries of
masculinity.

Push (2012) is the second in a trilogy of outdoor duets, exploring the push and pull around power and control.
