EVENTS TEMPORARILY POSTPONED

In response to the developing coronavirus situation in the UK, Exeter Phoenix is currently closed to the public. This is a temporary measure and we reviewing this on a month-by-month basis. No events will be taking place during April – the vast majority of events will be rescheduled for later in the year. Please note that the team are working through rescheduling a very high volume of events, but please rest assured we will be in touch with all ticket holders in due course. Please bear with us during this time.

Unprecedented closures like this with no confirmed government support will be hugely damaging for charities like Exeter Phoenix and many other sectors. If you are in a position to consider making a donation HERE, we would be extremely grateful.

Questioning the relationship between three dancers and three life-size human sculptures, Still Touch is Richard Chappell Dance’s collaboration with internationally renowned sculptor Anna Gillespie. Still Touch emotes the personal and human need for touch to be reciprocated by a living and moving person. Created initially for the Royal Opera House’s Month of Sundays Festival, the work explores the sensitive dynamic of touch between performers who are alive in perpetual motion, and individual sculptures of people fixed in time and constant stillness. As RCD’s first interdisciplinary creation, Still Touch dives into the combination of what people can express in motion and what sculpture expresses through image.

Following his critically acclaimed first full length work At the end we begin, Richard Chappell Dance’s new creation Still Touch will be a continuation of his unique and distinguishable use or ballet, improvisation, floor work and partner work in an intimate and rich new collaboration with visual arts.

Still Touch embraces an intimate and emotionally sensitive work that explores the weight felt on the body when devoid of touch and the lightness touch can bring from others who are loved.
