Following its creation on Studio Wayne McGregor's 2017 FreeSpace Program and first UK Tour, Richard Chappell Dance presents At the end we begin. The company's dynamic, compelling and first full-length work uses T.S. Eliot's classic series Four Quartets as a point of departure by representing each poem with four arresting and emotionally fuelled quartets of dance, named after each poem. 

At the end we begin questions how time's circular nature affects our understanding of ourselves and inhabits the sensitive and sometimes turbulent landscape of Eliot's poetry. At the end we begin takes four young individuals from a place of being lost to a state of empowerment and acceptance where they have found their own voice by journeying through Eliot's text.
