Manchester’s only producing and touring dance company, performing around fifty times a year, Company Chameleon Dance Theatre was founded by Anthony Missen with Kevin Edward Turner in 2007. The company’s performances bring histories, stories and archetypes to life through a muscular yet expressive movement style and a theatrical approach which allows dance to do the talking.
Choreographed by Anthony Missen, Chameleon’s latest show “Beauty of the Beast” is a funny, moving and subversive look at male groups, peeling back the unwritten codes of camaraderie and compliance that glue the gang together. With an all male cast, “Beauty of the Beast” showcases the company’s highly physical style, combining dance, theatre and music to hold up a mirror to our times.
Performance presented in English, with translation into Romanian.
Performance not recommended to audiences under the age of 12.
