10 at The Lowry, Salford 1 — 2 March 2018 Tickets from £13.50 — Book now

Founded in 2007 by two Manchester lads who shared a love of dance, Company Chameleon will celebrate its 10th anniversary year with a world-premiere performance. The aptly entitled 10 will see 3 unique pieces of dance performed in a triple-bill dance showcase at The Lowry, Salford Quays.

Company Chameleon tour internationally to wide acclaim with the company performing over fifty indoor and outdoor performances a year. The company’s inimitable and visceral choreographic style has gripped audiences the world over; their accessible storytelling and universal themes have inspired, and continue to influence, a whole new generation of dancers.

Co-Artistic Director, Kevin Edward Turner defines 10 as being an “opportunity to see the best of past and current work by the company and explore the collective and individual choreographic voices” that constitute Company Chameleon. The piece will revisit the company’s first major piece of work, Rites which was originally performed in 2007. In addition two brand new dance pieces will be performed – Imprint, a trio by Kevin Turner and Trip, a solo performance by Anthony Missen.

Rites put Company Chameleon on the map back in 2007, exploring themes around masculinity, the journey from boyhood to manhood and what it really means to be a man in a contemporary society. Still, as charged and powerful as when it was first performed in 2007, Anthony Missen explains, “the themes are as relevant today as we continue to grapple with the challenges and pressures of masculine identity in 21st-century life”.

Imprint, the second piece in the triple bill, is a new trio choreographed by Kevin Turner. Exploring love, romance and relationships and the imprint that they leave on us, Imprint is authentic, beautifully raw and elegantly choreographed.

The final piece, Trip is Anthony Missen’s new solo which immerses the audience in the idea of self-deception and explores the space between true and false identity. Presented as a series of snapshots, this is a highly theatrical piece which aims to expose the frivolous alongside the sad and revealing elements of self-deception.

Running at 90 minutes, 10 gives you the opportunity to see the piece which catapulted Chameleon onto the dance scene a decade ago alongside 2 brand new pieces of work. Featuring a fusion of dance styles and movement techniques, with Chameleon’s sensitive yet athletic signature style, 10 is guaranteed to be an inspirational and unmissable evening of dance.
