Over the past few years we have built on our choreographic retreats, led by leading international figures, to include events for emerging choreographers and artistic leaders. The retreats enable artists to explore new approaches to their work, develop their craft, and share ideas. These have proved to be highly successful and a much needed resource.

Past speakers have included charismatic director and playwrite Kwame Kwei-Armah and theatre director Paulette Randall MBE, and partners include Dartington Arts Trust and PANDA (Performing Arts Network Development Agency).

‘I never realised how much I needed to get out of my everyday environment & take a step back. I was running on empty & this has been an amazing, incredible experience.’ Anthea Lewis, Performer/Manager

‘I found it a compelling, transformative experience. I came here frustrated & lacking the will to go on & found camaraderie & renewal.’ Benji Reid, Director & Performer
