Chameleon’s latest and most unashamedly theatrical piece to date Gameshow is on tour again this autumn:
11 & 12 October DanceXchange, Birmingham Hippodrome
24 October The Civic, Barnsley
26 October The Lemon Tree (Dance Live Festival), Aberdeen
1 November Live at LICA, Lancaster
3 November Z-arts, Manchester
A satirical look at the cult of celebrity in which Chameleon’s joint Artistic Directors Anthony Missen and Kevin Edward Turner are pitched against one another as contestant and gameshow host in a story of desire, seduction and manipulation. Gameshow invites you to watch and pass judgment, as the contestant tests his luck against the big man J.O.Z. the personification of excess itself.
A show packed full of fearless dancing, spoken word and film. With prizes, power, money, fame, celebrity and a cult following up for grabs, or at the very least a limited edition J.O.Z shirt. Missen and Turner ask what needs to be sacrificed in order to win big.
“more than ready to deliver the goods thanks to the sheer force and charm of their personalities plus some dazzlingly precise and expressively muscular dancing” Donald Hutera, The Times
