Anthony Missen and Kevin Edward Turner formed Company Chameleon in 2007. After meeting in 1994 at Trafford Youth Dance Theatre, they trained together at Northern School of Contemporary Dance before working collectively and independently with companies including Scottish Dance Theatre, Mad Dogs Dance Theatre, Rui Horta, Rambert Dance Company, Phoenix Dance Theatr and Henri Oguike Dance Company.
Beauty Of The Beast is a dynamic new full-length work choreographed for Company Chameleon by Artistic Director Anthony Missen. A funny, moving and subversive look at male group dynamics, Beauty Of The Beast peels back and uncovers the many faces of man - strength, camaraderie, vulnerability and hostility; and what happens when affiliation becomes identity. With an exciting mix of collaborators, five exceptional performers showcase the company's unique physical style, combining dance, theatre and live music to hold a mirror to our times.
