In collaboration with artists, participants, academics and stakeholders, we continue to develop an original dance language that is formed by identity. Our artistic practice is dedicated to; periods of intensive research, the presentation of dance through live and digital performances, interdisciplinary collaborations, and international cultural exchange.

Directed by Nicole Vivien Watson and Paul Miller, who are representative of our wider community, and are committed to sustaining resources that enable discourse with the D/deaf and hearing community, via communication channels in English, British and International Sign Languages.

In 2018, we proudly  became a registered Level 2 Disability Confident Committed Employer, which is a scheme developed by employers and disabled people’s representatives.

In the post-performance discussion I was really interested when Tom White, the musician, spoke about their experience, how it had been a challenge to their practice as they had never worked with a Deaf choreographer before. How they had to explore ways to make cues work for both hearing and Deaf dancers, how they mixed sound live throughout the performance to take cues from the dancers, and how they experimented with low frequency sound so that within the space it was not only heard, but could also be felt.

This for me exemplifies one of the powers of Disability Arts; and the challenge to artists to learn to create in ways that are new to them to allow accessibility and how this pushes their artistry.
