Critically acclaimed choreographer Richard Chappell presents his double bill Still Touch and Silence Between Waves. The evening combines his unique and full bodied use of ballet, improvisation, floor work and partner work with intimate visual arts and a cast of exceptional European and Singaporean dancers.
Questioning the relationship between three dancers and three life-size human sculptures, Still Touch is Richard Chappell Dance’s collaboration with internationally renowned sculptor Anna Gillespie. Still Touch emotes the personal and human need for touch to be reciprocated by a living and moving person. Created initially for Royal Opera Houses Open Up Festival, Still Touch dives into the combination of what people can express in motion and what sculpture expresses through image.
With a cast of three Singaporean dancers, Silence Between Waves takes inspiration from the environment of Berry Head in Torbay and connects two places across the sea by reflecting on home and far away. Comparing the South West coastline with that of urban Singapore, the work explores how the sounds of the coast in secluded places contrast with everyday noise pollution and the effect that being connected to the sea has on the body.
