artistic director / company chordelia

 

Company Chordelia creates moving and accessible multi-genre dance performances which explore narrative and character driven work centred around deeply human themes.

 Company Chordelia was formed in April 2002 by award winning director/choreographer, Artistic Director Kally Lloyd-Jones.  The company’s work is rooted in dance and theatre but works across genres.  Each work she creates for Company Chordelia is unique in content and form, a constant evolution of approach to suit each carefully researched subject.  And yet there is a clear and recognisable voice and vision which owes much to tradition and classical art forms while at the same time pushing at those boundaries.  

Lloyd-Jones makes work which explores the human condition, the edges of our experience and what drives us.  Whether it is about the dance marathons of depression-era America, Nijinsky’s descent into madness, or an analysis of Lady Macbeth, Lloyd-Jones’s intense curiosity and meticulous detail paves the way for a melding of dance with potent theatricality.  Working from a directorial perspective, underpinned by her dance background, she produces detailed, layered, psychological character studies and weaves them around movement vocabularies created for each show, and around the people she works with.

Kally  has devised, directed and choreographed many works for the company, the most recent of which are detailed here.
