Still Touch

Still Touch is a new in collaboration between Richard Chappell Dance, Sculptor Anna Gillespie, Composer Samuel Hall and Dramaturg Neus Gil Cortes. Questioning the relationship between performer and sculpture, Still Touch explores desire for human touch and the value individuals place on the images of people held within their minds. As a solo with life size sculpture, Still Touch questions the definition of a duet by creating intimacy between someone alive in perpetual motion, and an individual fixed in time and constant stillness.

Richard Chappell Dance will be presenting the first excerpt of Still Touch in London in Autumn 2018, through the Royal Opera House's Month of Sundays Festival in The Clore Studio for two days of performances in November. The work will then be developed into a full length performance throughout the the first half of 2019, with tour dates being announced in December.

The research for Still Touch has been funded by Arts Council England and The Linbury Trust and supported by Royal Opera House, Dance City and Swindon Dance.
