’Beautifully revealing…Unforgettably good.’ Judith Mackrell, The Guardian ★★★★

Mesmerising and powerful dance theatre from National Dance Award nominees, Company Chameleon.

Witness, the main piece in this double-bill, turns the spotlight on mental health in a sensitive and unique portrayal of a family coping through crisis. Raw and insightful, Witness breaks down preconceptions by uncovering the realities of an illness, which is too often misunderstood.

Intimate solos, emotive duets and group work combine to reveal the impact of mental health on relationships, and the crucial role of support and understanding in the road to recovery.

A melting pot of dance styles and a rich mix of movement techniques, Witness presents a totally original view on the different layers of mental illness, delving deep into an issue which effects one in four of us each year.  Touching, sad, funny and absurd, this is relevant and up-to-the-minute dance theatre at its best.

To open the evening, Company Chameleon perform Words Unspoken, a short work exploring the untold secrets of the performers on stage.  Six dancers perform flawlessly formed movements in a striking and synchronized style. The effect is hypnotic and provides the perfect opener to this captivating double bill, by one of the UK’s homegrown independent dance companies.

Choreography by Kevin Edward Turner. Original music features by award-winning composer, Miguel Marin. Lighting by Yaron Abulafia and costume by Emma Bailey.

Words Unspoken commissioned by LaMov Dance Company in Spain.
