Reciprocal Gestures: A New Season of Dance and Movement at Chapter

Chapter is thrilled to announce Reciprocal Gestures: A Season of Movement and Dance, this September to December. The curated programme will celebrate shared moments and explorations of masculinity, queerness, ageing, the after-lives of colonialism, intimacy and community with performances and events from Gareth Chambers, Seke Chimutengwende, Emilyn Claid, Lewys Holt, Good News from the Future, Anushiye Yarnell and Groundwork Collective.

Across this season, performances from some of the most exciting contemporary dance artists come together alongside talks, open classes, scratch nights, screenings and special events, to put artistic sharing at the centre.

Chapter’s performance programme is a space for experimental and interdisciplinary live art practices, where artists are supported to take risks and audience can find exciting, original, and accessible works. Chapter’s commitment to this work speaks to the rich history of supporting radical live art practices, and it’s unique position in Cardiff as a multi-artform venue with the capacity to support artists to develop their practice and share their work in dynamic ways.

Performance Curator Kit Edwards, shares some of her thoughts on this exciting new programme: “The dance ecology in Wales is at a particularly exciting moment where artists across disciplines are coming together for creative exchange. A strong community of artists working with dance have made Chapter their home and we’re keen to celebrate what they’ve built and bring it into conversation with some incredible international dance artists who are performing in Wales for the first time.”
