Part of Dancing City
5 September, 1-1:15pm | 3:30-3:45pm
Duration: 15 minutes
Type: Dance, Music, Spectacle
Gripping and raw, Amaranthine is a story of deep love and deep conflict. The dancers strive towards resolution and acceptance whilst battling emotional and physical discord in this magnetic male-female duet. Choreographed by Kevin Edward Turner and Navala Chaudhari, this piece from Company Chameleon combines a rich mix of dance styles from contemporary dance to b-boying and capoeira. Intricate partner work and a mesmerising soundtrack will exhilarate and engage.
Amaranthine is performed as part of Dancing City, GDIF’s annual outdoor dance programme which has been reinvented to allow audiences to experience more intimate performances whilst observing social distancing.

About the company
Company Chameleon 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 went on to train with 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 indoor and outdoor performances every year. Wherever we perform, we lead a dance class or a workshop. As a result, we have introduced thousands of young people, from countries all over the world, to a different side of dance and movement.
Amaranthine is supported by Arts Council England and Manchester City Council.
Dancing City is supported by Canary Wharf Arts+Events and Without Walls.
