Following it’s creation on Studio Wayne McGregor’s 2017 FreeSpace Program and first UK Tour, Richard Chappell Dance presents At the end we begin. The company’s dynamic, compelling and first full length work uses T.S. Eliot’s classic series Four Quartets as a point of departure by representing each poem with four arresting and emotionally fuelled quartets of dance, named after each poem.

At the end we begin questions how time’s circular nature affects our understanding of ourselves and inhabits the sensitive and sometimes turbulent landscape of Eliot’s poetry. At the end we begin takes four young individuals from a place of being lost to a state of empowerment and acceptance where they have found their own voice by journeying through Eliot’s text.

Whilst combining Chappell’s distinguishable blend of classical ballet, martial arts, improvisation and contact work with three other highly skilled performers, At the end we begin dives into each performer’s unique and diverse skills. With a rich palette of qualities, At the end we begin welcomes audiences into a tenacious and committed world of full-bodied movement and personal sensitivity.

With dramaturgy by Neus Gil Cortes (previous dancer Hofesh Shechter), previous mentoring by critically acclaimed choreographer Russell Maliphant. a freshly composed score of cello, piano and electronics by Samuel Hall and lighting design by Kieron Johnson, At the end we begin is Richard Chappell Dance’s most challenging and collaborative work to date.

“Mesmirising. Tremendous chemistry and interesting, unpredictive choreography.”
? Karen Bussell, THE REVIEWS HUB
