About Our Showcases

Know the score


As part of Dance Base’s commitment to offering performance platforms for new and emerging dance artists, we produce a termly showcase in our main theatre space, Studio 1.
Each term we invite an established dance artist to headline the showcase, while also inviting any professionals who have work they would like to share, to perform alongside them on the same bill.

This is not intended to be a professional production: we welcome works in progress and submissions from artists who just want to try things out in front of an audience. Each term our headlining artist will have been creating new work in the studio during the week of the showcase, with a cast of dance artists who have applied to be involved.

Showcase headliners have included:

Illuminations by Lindsay Kemp (Autumn 2017)

In Partnership: Being and Moving Together by Tony Mills & Dance Artists (Spring 2017)

We Are All Just Little Creatures by Christine Devaney & Dancers (Autumn 2016)
