Following it's creation on Studio Wayne McGregor's 2017 FreeSpace Program and critically claimed UK Tour in 2018, Richard Chappell Dance presents At the end we begin. The company's dynamic, compelling and first full length work uses T.S. Eliot's classic series Four Quartets as a point of departure by representing each poem with four arresting and emotionally fuelled quartets of dance, named after each poem.
At the end we begin questions how time's circular nature affects our understanding of ourselves and inhabits the derelict and sometimes turbulent landscape of Eliot's poetry. Whilst combining Chappell's distinguishable blend of classical ballet, martial arts, improvisation and contact work with three other highly skilled performers, At the end we begin dives into each performer's unique and diverse skills.
