Where? Monday, Thursday: Yorkshire Dance, Tuesday - Wednesday: RJC Dance

Theo invites dancers to bring attention to their perceptive experience of the space, each other and themselves to find greater lucidity in action. He begins with a range of sensory exercises balanced with led movement patterns that consider alignment and the many dynamic connections within the body. Expect great tunes, a mix of exploratory work and devised combinations, finishing with phrase work and/or group improvisations that encourage connected, articulate and expansive dancing.

Theo launched his own company in 2012 and has swiftly built an international reputation for creating compelling and visually arresting works that explore the communicative potential of the body and the empathetic nature of dance in performance. Company work includes; Ordinary Courage, Of Land & Tongue, Chalk and This Bright Field. Commissions include Tanztheatre Wuppertal Pina Bausch and Danza Contemporanea de Cuba. He is currently conceiving 3 new company works and planning commissions for Candoco and The Talent Hub. Theo is an Associate Artist at Brighton Dome, Dance4 and an Honorary Fellow of Plymouth University, he has recently relocated to Hebden Bridge.
