New dance, music and light art combine in this visually stunning and extraordinary site-specific piece created by Company Chameleon at the iconic Manchester Central Library.

Seven
stories have underpinned literature since the beginning of time and this is their contemporary reimagining. From the inner monster to the superhero, from the tragedy of division to the pure joy of true love, Illuminate explores the stories that help us to understand ourselves, and our place in the world in which we live.

Seven
scenes in seven spaces will take you to the past, present and future in a captivating mix of live performance around Central Library. As light art twists interiors and shifts perceptions, and an original and live soundtrack plays out, a rich blend of dance and movement will take you on a journey like no other.

Featuring international artists, rising talents and homegrown performers, Illuminate will be brought to life by an ensemble of 60 dancers, musicians and collaborators, for what promises to be a transformative and immersive cultural experience at Central Library.

This is a promenade performance, you will be required to stand and walk around the venue. Sturdy shoes are required. Performances feature strobe lighting. If you have access questions please contact info@companychameleon.com
