Amaranthine, pronounced am-a-ran-thine, explores a male and female relationship, and follows a couple in conflict as they desperately try to reconnect and find resolution.

Exploring a male and female relationship, Amaranthine follows a couple in conflict as they desperately try to reconnect and find resolution.  Intricate and emotionally charged, the pushes and pulls of disagreement and heated argument are felt, as is the appreciation of space, understanding and eventually, acceptance.

Combining a rich mix of dance styles, the movement is both powerful and risk taking, drawing from an amalgamation of dance techniques including contemporary dance, b-boying, capoeira and partner work.

Amaranthine is a joint choreography by Kevin Edward Turner and Navala ‘Niku’ Chaudhari. The piece will be performed by Theo Fapohunda and Juliana Javier, Company Dancers at Chameleon, who will bring to life the narrative of the piece to an original score by composer, Miguel Marin.

Amaranthine premieres with three FREE pop-up performances in Manchester in September 2018, find out more here.
