At the end we begin
Following it’s creation on Studio Wayne McGregor’s 2017 FreeSpace Program and first UK Tour, 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.
With dramaturgy by Neus Gil Cortes, a freshly composed score of cello, piano and electronics by Samuel Halland costume design by Hannah Taylor, At the end we begin is Richard Chappell Dance’s most challenging and collaborative work to date.
