Still Touch

Created initially for Royal Opera House’s Month of Sundays Festival in 2019, the work explores the sensitive dynamic of touch between performers who are alive in perpetual motion, and individual sculptures of people fixed in time and constant stillness.

Silence between waves

Taking inspiration from the views of Berry Head in Brixham and the Singaporean dancers who perform the work, Silence Between Waves frames a conversation through movement and sound, connecting two places across the sea by reflecting on home and far away. The work is fuelled by local stories of people in Brixham through a soundscape that features local people describing their relationship with the sea and communication over long distances. 

Silence Between Waves was commissioned by Torbay's Great Place Scheme for Eyeview's Extraordinary Festival and funded by Arts Council England and the National Arts Council of Singapore. The project was co-produced by EyeView and Dance in Devon and supported by Exeter Phoenix, Nanyang Academy of Fine Arts (Singapore), ROC Creative and Sound Communities.

At The End We Begin

Following its 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.
