Chester Hayes – 25+ Residency April 2021
– Showcase May 2021
London-based dance artist Chester Hayes performs and creates movement for live performance, film, theatre and night-club settings. Chester has performed and devised movement since graduating from Bird College (BA Hons Degree) in 2013.
Chester is heavily inspired by night-club culture and the dance that exists on a night-club dance-floor. He is exploring autobiographical narratives and how movement is shaped by personal experience. ⠀
