Nigel Charnock, a founder member of DV8, founded his own company – Nigel Charnock + Company - in 1995. Renowned as a maverick and totally captivating performer with a string of internationally renowned solo shows to his name, Nigel ruptures the boundaries of performance, continually exploring and developing dance as a genre through working across different disciplines and media.
Nigel has created internationally renowned dance pieces throughout
In 2006, Nigel will be undertaking a variety of projects including commissions, teaching, performing, writing, directing and recording a cd. Amongst these projects is Stupid Men, a maelstrom and a male storm! An improvisation and performance project to be realised with the support of Dance 4, Stupid Men is for an ensemble of male performers including Adrian Howells and Nigel himself, who will also direct. Each member of the ensemble has a passionate interest in improvisation and in making raw, fearless theatre; each performance will be a unique experience for performers and audience: a completely free improvisation and an act of total theatre. Each time will be the first time and the last!
