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 masculinity and male relationships.
On the road in 2018 are:
10 (2018) celebrates Company Chameleon‘s tenth anniversary with a revival of the company’s inaugural duet Rites (2007) and two new creations, a solo Trip by Anthony Missen, performed by Theo Fapohunda, and a trio Imprint by Kevin Turner performed by Kevin with David Colley and Maddie Shimwell
Amaranthine (2010-2018) is Company Chameleon‘s first male-female duet. Originally choreographed by Kevin Turner and Navala Chaudhari and performed in Spain in 2010, 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.
