Gareth Chambers

After spending time in Cardiff and London, Gareth Chambers moved to Hull last year to be back home and re-connect to his cultural heritage. As a dance maker, he is interested in researching non-traditional dance methodologies to create choreography which is raw and real-time based.

Since graduating from Trinity Laban, Gareth has gained a reputation as an artist who’s unafraid to make work which engages with working-class culture and its influence on masculinity. In 2021 through funding from a DYCP Arts Council England grant Gareth travelled to Asia to receive intensive training in MMA /Boxing which influences how he creates choreographic material.

Gareth has had residencies nationally at DanceBase, FABRIC (as part of the Horizon residency programme 2023) and Experimentica and internationally in Berlin and ImpulsTanz as a danceweb scholar 2017.  Pre-pandemic Gareth showcased work in Australia, Germany and Israel and danced/choreographed for Marikiscrycrycry.

He has been funded by ACE, ACW, Jerwood and Absolutely Cultured and was Associate Director for The Welsh National Opera as their Jerwood Fellow.
