About Chrysalis London
Chrysalis London captures the energy, excitement and raw hunger of brand new talent bringing high quality, experienced artists together with emerging artists and recent graduates to create work which looks to combine disciplines from dance, theatre, music, design and fashion ensuring that the Company’s performances are accessible and hugely entertaining to all audiences. Blemings’ intricate choreography incorporates and displays delicate beauty with aggression and power to engage and entertain its viewer, transporting them inside his creations.
'While many view professional inexperience as a negative, personally I see it as an incredible thing. I focus and build on the many attributes that come with graduate dancers, such as their explosive energy, creativity and insatiable hunger to constantly progress and guide them into a new generation of artists, harnessing their raw talent and encouraging them to constantly push the limits on what’s possible and produce work that stuns, amazes and engages our audiences.'
Founded in 2014 with the express intention of engaging a wider variety of audiences with cutting edge Contemporary dance, Chrysalis London takes the industries best kept secret – graduate dancers – and through a one year programme with the overarching goal of bridging the gap between training and professional life, we create explosive, edgy and highly impactful work that exhilarates audiences, leaving them hungry for more.
Our successes include; a debut mixed bill showcase at Richmix in Shoreditch; a Sony Pictures Movie; Outreach programme to 18 schools; 3 performances at Move It; a Musical at Yorkshire Playhouse, Leeds; a mixed bill Shoreditch House event; a mixed bill Soho Farmhouse event & 3 mixed bill performances at the BGAC in London. To date, we have performed commissioned work at Sadlers Wells, staged a high profile Contemporary dance event in London for public and press in connection with the Sealife London Aquarium, will perform at Move It 2017 and are due to perform for a second time at Soho Farmhouse.
Most recently, we are proud to be partnering with Creation Box Studios in London as resident Contemporary Dance Company.
