14 September – 15 December
Reciprocal Gestures is a programme which foregrounds choreographic exchange. Across the autumn/winter season, performances from some of the most exciting contemporary dance artists come together alongside talks, open classes, screenings, and special events, to cultivate a space of reciprocity. Visit our performance page or our social media for more information on the season.
“The dance ecology in Wales is at a particularly exciting moment of creative exchange. A strong community of artists working with dance have made Chapter their home and we’re keen to celebrate what they’ve built and bring it into conversation with some incredible international dance artists bringing their work to Wales for the first time.” - Kit Edwards, Performance Curator
We present music, sound, movement, dance, theatre, conversation, workshops and happenings in live contexts. Our commitment to experimental performance speaks to our rich history of supporting radical live art practices, and our unique position in Cardiff as a multi-artform venue with the capacity to support artists to develop their practice and share their work dynamically.
We support artists engaged in the idea of live practice: what does it mean to be with an audience? How can this dynamic be a space to sense/learn/be with each other – to think critically and collectively. Our performance programme calls and responds to our wider programme including visual art and film, forming a constellation of ideas and practices. Our work is agile, collaborative and committed to our community – artists, audiences, neighbours, staff, and cultural workers – on our doorstep, in Wales and beyond.
From local emerging artists to international touring productions, from comedy cabaret to new writing.
