The Company

We make dances beyond dance. With an international team and across different collaborations, we develop transdisciplinary projects between movement, design, visual and plastic arts and music, making the disciplines dance among themselves and with each other.

We have thus tasked ourselves with making contemporary dance happen in established dance spaces as well as in unusual places. Accordingly, our productions tour European metropolises as well as more rural areas, black box theaters as well as museums, galleries, concert halls, historic buildings and public spaces. Dance is thus, almost in passing, rendered accessible to a new public.

At the same time, an important part of our work consists in different formats of creative learning, audience engagement and development. For each production, we develop an accompanying framing programme for various audiences, ranging from specifically devised post-performance discussions with the audience to accompanying workshops, symposia and catalogues.

As a company we recognize that the access to culture and dance, the participation in art and the creation of art projects are connected to privilege. We are committed to working on recognizing and attempting to breaking down structural inequalities. We are committed to  developing structures and projects that make the access to art and dance as an audience member, workshop participant, dancer or artistic collaborator as accessible as possible.
