Chloe Loftus Dance creates physically vibrant and accessible high quality performances. Highly physical contact and aerial work, human relationships, character idiosyncrasies and attracting new audiences to contemporary dance are key inspirations in the work.
“The strength coupled with the consummate artistry of the performer brought us many breath-taking moments… The success of a work of performance art, of any art for that matter, emerges from the sincerity of the artist and the human truth it reveals. Chloe Loftus’ commitment to her art form is both very true and very human.” (Theatre Wales Review, The Day We Realised The World Was An Oyster)
