Chamber Made

A clever, entertaining and suspenseful dance drama…full of surprises

CHAMBER MADE is performed in a hotel bedroom and this intimate setting allows audiences an immediate and voyeuristic experience. A young couple burst into the hotel room with a wild and playful energy. A single man in his thirties meticulously grooms himself for his big moment. Meanwhile, an older married couple pack and unpack past memories. These three stories unfold in their individual time frames and overlap to comment on the greater theme of couples and their ever changing stages of love.

There is only one room but there are multiple occupants in this wonderfully witty and wistful dance theatre piece… Turning the audience into voyeurs as if at a peepshow, and reminding us how the anonymity of the hotel room allows us to take on many identities, the show offers three entwining stories happening in a single space but in different time frames.

…It is 50 minutes of delight that bears witness to the many lives of hotel rooms and which is performed with a thrilling athletic zest.

Both playful and sensual, the physical work’s sheer precision and emotional eloquence is outstanding…
