Hot Potato

Commissioned by Dance City ‘Hot House’ – from Richard Chappell Dance – is a passionate and timely response to the political climate.

Many have reason to be frustrated by the current political climate, but what Richard Chappell Dance have done with ‘Hot House’ is to take that frustration and turn all that intense energy into a powerful celebration of collective generosity. Providing a space for people to come together and be uplifted by the company’s extraordinary ensemble of performers, this new show features a soundscape influenced by Chinese, Indian and European classical music, rearranged and performed by violinist Enyuan Khong and electronic music duo Larch. This promises to be a bold, transformational evening that celebrates the joy of movement and music in a setting where concert meets bonfire. Yep – you heard – meets bonfire. GM

Hot House, Friday 24 March, Dance City, Newcastle, 7.30pm, £18 (£14.50 students), dancecity.co.uk
