Richard Chappell Dance: Infinite Ways Home
Posted on May 6th 2022 by Whats on Northeast
Chappell’s first full-length production for a mid-scale stage, Infinite Ways Home sees six performers explore their perceptions of reality through other-worldly experiences, connecting ideas of Celtic traditions of ritual with modern day experiences of rave culture.
Combining Chappell’s diverse choreographic language of ballet, contemporary dance and improvisation, this multisensory production looks to redefine our sense of community, connectivity and home.
Featuring music from Cardiff based electronic duo Larch (Matthew Allmark and Kai Hellstrom), alongside live violin by Enyuan Khong, Infinite Ways Home is a vibrant feast of colour and pulsating sound.
Alongside Infinite Ways Home, Richard Chappell Dance will deliver a two-day curtain raiser workshop where participants will create and learn a new dance with Chappell and company dancer Iris Borras that will be performed on the Brewhouse stage ahead of the show on the 25 March.
