Mass Movement Direction
Chloe has had the pleasure of working on several large-scale events. Most notably she was Assistant Mass Movement Director for National Theatre Wales’ epic City of the Unexpected, celebrating Roald Dahl’s centenary which saw over 3o0,000 audience roaming the streets of Cardiff (pictured). She was also Ar Waith, Ar Daith‘s co-choreographer and performance team leader for the Wales Millennium Centre’s 10th anniversary spectacular by Walk the Plank. Projects have involved choreographing mass hoola-hoopers, ballet choruses and pillow fights, synchronised swimmers, umbrella dancers, processions and parades, aerial dancers and a swan-lake duet for a pair of excavators.
Chloe directed the opening spectacle for Splore 2018 & 2019, a music festival held in Tapapakanga Regional Park, New Zealand.
‘Us’ has toured across Aotearoa, enlivening local communities for a processional mass movement take over of the streets.
Chloe is passionate about engaging community and audiences to large-scale events through effective and imaginative choreography and direction.
