Umbra: performance by UK based Company Chameleon

Chameleon Company returns to Timisoara with a new show. UMBRA is a powerful and nuanced trio, delicate and explosive in equal measure. Highly physical and theatrical, the show spotlights exclusion, and the search for understanding and to be understood.

UMBRA will happen on Saturday August 5, from 8 PM in Sf. Gheorghe square. Participation is free of charge.

The performance is brought to Timisoara thanks to choreographer Lavinia Urcan and is part of CADRE & FORME - a complex dance program, developed by the associations Noi Re-Creăm and Unfold Motion, included in the Cultural Program "Timișoara 2023 - European Capital of Culture" and funded by the Municipality of Timișoara through the Timișoara Project Centre.

About Company Chameleon
"We make original and inspiring dance theatre in Manchester and perform across the UK and the world."
Company Chameleon started when Anthony Missen and Kevin Edward Turner met at Trafford Youth Dance Theatre in the mid-1990s. Two ordinary lads from Manchester, they shared an ambition to dance professionally. After developing their talent at Trafford, they went on to train with the Northern School of Contemporary Dance, and after graduating travelled and worked with some of the world’s most innovative dance companies and choreographers.

They came home in 2007 with the aim of setting up their own dance company – and Company Chameleon was born. Today, Company Chameleon tours internationally, staging over 50 indoor and outdoor performances every year. Wherever we perform, we lead a dance class or a workshop. As a result, we have introduced thousands of young people, from countries all over the world, to a different side of dance and movement.

This project is part of the national cultural programme "Timișoara – European Capital of Culture in the year 2023" and is funded by the City of Timișoara, through the Center for Projects
