Of Man And Beast

Category: Show Related artist: Company Chameleon

Rage Against the Machine, athleticism and beauty, Company Chameleon’s unforgettable outdoor dance piece explores and uncovers the many faces of masculinity.

Told through a series of conversations created through dance and movement, Of Man And Beast provides a powerful and sensitive look at male dynamics and behaviour. The piece follows a male group of friends in a range of different scenarios. Bravado is high and aggression is rife – you have to be tough, funny, fast if you’re part of the gang.

With complex group dynamics and a shifting pecking order, cracks in the group begin to appear, and soon the characters are forced to question, their individual identity and just what it means to fit in and belong.

Tightly packed and purposefully fast, Of Man And Beast is different throughout, showcasing Company Chameleon’s unique physical style and a rich mix of dance and movement techniques. Anthony Missen’s choreography is both gritty and graceful and is brought to life through the stunning athletic ability of the five exceptional male dancers.

A thought-out soundtrack adds to the drama and features Rage Against the Machine alongside original music by award-winning composer, Miguel Marin.
