Vincent Dance Theatre (VDT) makes crucial performance for the critical times in which we live. We distribute this work on stage, on film and online to place the work at the heart of public debate.
Artistic Director / Choreographer Charlotte Vincent and her brilliant, cross-generational ensemble have been moving people and making them think since 1994.
Acclaimed by The Observer as ‘one of the most important feminist artists working in Britain today’, Vincent creates ‘astonishingly original’ (New York Times) productions with a ‘crackling intellectual core’ (The Observer). In 2017 VDT was nominated for Best Independent Company by the Critics Circle National Dance Awards.
VDT continues its exploration of contemporary gender politics, with young people making and performing in the work, with SHUT DOWN FILM INSTALLATION at Brighton Festival in May 2018 and VIRGIN TERRITORY touring on film and online throughout the year. In spring 2019 VDT will tour SHUT DOWN live across the UK.
VDT also facilitates extensive ENGAGEMENT, MENTORING and PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT workshops and practice labs, directs SPECIAL PROJECTS and delivers DIALOGUE AND DEBATES events. You can also follow our online campaign against everyday sexism here: #VDTEverydayAction.
