SESSION 2: LEARN ABOUT THE COMPANY

 

A BIT ABOUT US

Our mission is to spread the joy of imagination, physical storytelling and the moving body with audiences. We believe in wellness and creativity for people and the planet.

We are based in Manchester where we create live professional productions, run community based projects, and promote wellbeing sessions using dance, massage and yoga.


The themes of our work are inspired by the times in which we are living, dealing with pressing issues such as personal wellbeing and finding community as well as political themes such as environmental impact and responsibility. 

We believe in the power of individual and collective endeavour. That empowered people make great choices. We all have a role in inspiring one another to grow, to have guts to follow our authentic heartfelt voice and harness our creativity. We know that good wellbeing is the fuel for connection and change. ​

EITHNE KANE

Co. Artistic Director

Eithne began her movement career by training gymnastics from a young age before discovering the North Yorkshire County Youth Dance Company and finding her ongoing passion for contemporary dance and physical theatre.She went on to train at London Contemporary Dance School where this love of dance grew into a passion for choreography, physical story telling and athletic movement styles such as floor work and partnering.

 
Eithne mixes freelance performance work with devising independently, and has worked with Tilted Productions, Joli Vyann, Opera North, Jorge Cresis and Dylan Quinn Dance Theatre among others.


Eithne’s gymnastic experience has increasingly brought her into the world of contemporary circus - informing her acrobatic dance fusion. Eithne also teaches yoga, a practice which has been invaluable to her in times of injury - something she feels passionate about sharing.
