Hello [subscriber:firstname, | default:]

We're back from a fantastic freezing cold January trip to New York where we showcased 5 SOLDIERS to North American presenters. The response was fantastic and we're now following up with the aim of touring to the USA in Spring 2019.

I'm back in the studio researching new works and also making a very special version of MODERN WARRIOR for the main stage of Birmingham's Chinese New Year celebrations.

Later in February I'll be joined by distinguished minds to discuss and explore future-proofing through the lens of dance - I hope you can join us.
Rosie Kay, Artistic Director
