Mat Iech is a new programme which encompasses Elisabeth’s passion for outreach & mediation. It makes dance accessible to people from wider sections of the population in a variety of ways.

Mat Iech includes two specific branches:

1. Mediation: for each production we develop individual programmes, specifically designed to accompany your varied audience experience. These programmes range from post-performance conversations with the audience based on Elisabeth’s key-chain methodology to workshops, symposia and catalogue publications.

2. Accessibility: Mat Iech brings the world of dance to two groups of people close to Elisabeth’s heart. Firstly, to children, regardless of age, background, language or origin, and secondly to people who, whether for financial, social, geographical or health-related reasons, can no longer go to the theatre.
