Not neat, nor calm, nor perfect, but vibrant, chaotic and powerful – we are wild 21st century women.
We are not to be gazed upon but met head on.
KHAOS celebrates what it is to be woman, drawing on ancient stories and oppressive archetypes to bring audiences of all ages a highly energetic, stirring and visceral dance performance that rejects order in favour of complexity and chaos. Live musicians join six contemporary dance artists to revel in the joy, tenderness and the power of wild women. Expect evocative choreography that seems to compel audiences to dance in the aisles and out into the streets.
Dedicated to women who have fought for their rights throughout history and continue to do so today.
Chhaya Collective is a contemporary dance collective working to establish sustainable creative relationships between artists in UK and globally, through cross-cultural exchange and interdisciplinary collaborative practice.
