C-12 Dance Theatre presents The Chair. This emotionally charged double-bill of dance-inspired physical theatre has been capturing audiences since the premiers in Sweden and the Edinburgh Fringe Festival. The first piece Enough, features a female duet struggling to deal with living with a burden. The title piece, The Chair uses theatrical narrative with fluid dance and movement work to tell the story of a man who is forced to face his past.

Murder, torture and forgiveness are explored through one man’s discovery of his past. What is the truth behind this individual’s situation? What will be his retribution? C-12 Dance Theatre will take you on a journey into one man’s existence of justice through this explosive piece of contemporary dance theatre.

C-12 Dance Theatre is an emerging London based dance theatre company who are rapidly gaining status on the dance circuit. Established in 2005 by Annie-Lunnette Deakin-Foster, Nasae Evanson and Adam Towndrow, the company fuses dance and theatre creating a unique blend of physical dance performance with a theatrical narrative.

Previous performance credits include Dance Umbrella’s Brief Encounter at the Southbank Centre in October 2008 where their duet, ONE, was received with critical acclaim.
