Dramaturg in Residence

Our Dramaturg in Residence programme offers artists different ways to engage with dramaturgy

Dramaturgs support artists to develop thinking and vision as they create their work. Our pioneering Dramaturg in Residence programme aims to open up dramaturgy to UK dance like never before. Led by renowned dramaturg Lou Cope, the project began in summer 2015 with Guest Dramaturg Martin Hargreaves joining us in 2016 and Luke Pell in 2017. Artists are offered a range of options to engage: from weekend intensives to mentoring, workshops, Skype sessions and a number of collaborative models to support artists working with a dramaturg.

“Shake(s) the ground under your feet… (which) is exactly what an independent artist needs to keep growing (and) developing.”
