Internationally renowned company Richard Chappell Dance returns to Oxford Playhouse with their latest creation Hot House.
A passionate response to the cost-of-living crisis Hot House shares the frustration currently felt by many, turning 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.
Following on from the success of Richard Chappell Dance’s recent production Infinite Ways Home, Hot House is a bold, transformational evening that celebrates the joy of movement and music in a setting where concert meets bonfire.
