Company Chameleon makes original, inspiring dance theatre in Manchester, and perform across the UK and the world.
The Company started when Anthony Missen and Kevin Edward Turner met at Trafford Youth Dance Theatre in the mid-1990s. Two ordinary lads from Manchester, they shared an ambition to dance professionally. After developing their talent at Trafford, they trained at the Northern School of Contemporary Dance, and after graduating travelled and worked with some of the world’s most innovative dance companies and choreographers.
They came home in 2007 with the aim of setting up their own dance company – and Company Chameleon was born. Today, Company Chameleon tours internationally, staging over 50 performances every year.
An extensive learning and participation programme, featuring workshops, masterclasses, intensives and residencies, is delivered in tandem with the performance programme. As a result, Chameleon has introduced thousands of people from all around the world to a different side of dance and movement.
In 2019, Company Chameleon welcomed Dame Darcey Bussell on board as the Company’s first-ever Patron.
