Independent Dance (ID) is an artist-led organisation providing a responsive framework to support, sustain and stimulate dance artists in their ongoing development as professionals.
It provides a specialist and coherent programme offering opportunities to learn, deepen enquiry, share practice and exchange ideas as part of an interdependent international community.
The classes and workshops at the core of the programme, led by internationally renowned artists, place a particular focus on movement exploration as a source for performance, improvisation and composition. Please visit the Classes page for our current programme.
The what_now festival is recruiting volunteer ushers to help out on front of house from 11-13 April 2014.
If you would like to be involved, please send your availability to firstname.lastname@example.org by Friday 28th March.
This is an unpaid opportunity, but you will receive a £6 contribution towards travel expenses each day you work, and some Independent Dance classes in return for your time.
Save the Date!
The what_now festival 2014 will take place from 11 – 13 April. This year, the festival takes a new form, emerging out of a residency, sleep over, takeover of the building.
The weekend offers the public and wider dance community the chance to be part of and share some of what emerges from this process.
what_now is presented by Independent Dance in association with Siobhan Davies Dance.

Becky Edmunds’ feature-length documentary “Turn Your Fucking Head” follows the final edition of dancer and choreographer Deborah Hay’s unique Solo Performance Commissioning Project.
The film was commissioned by ID, and follows Hay and the 20 artists as they engage with this intensive process, as she continues to redefine what performance is and how performers perform.
It will be showing on 14 March in Amsterdam’s The EYE.
