Richard Chappell Dance presents Home Revisited: a staggering love-letter to dance, family and Devon
Join Richard Chappell Dance to celebrate a decade of dance in the South West. For the last 10 years, Richard Chappell Dance has created memorable and moving dance experiences for audiences across the UK on stage, screen and in person through wide-reaching participatory projects.
Now for this special anniversary year, the Exeter-based company returns to its small-scale roots on the stage of Richard Chappell’s very first performances. For this celebratory programme, Richard Chappell Dance will perform Vast Rocks Revisited a reimagined version of the company’s first small-scall creation which takes inspiration from the Devon landscape. As well as this is an extract from one of their most ambitious works to date, Infinite Ways Home.
The evening’s programme will also include a commission from creative duo harrynsmithy with the playful and satirical dog eat dog. Alongside this will be performances from a range of intergenerational community groups, in what promises to be a true celebration of home, family, and dance.
