Vincent Dance Theatre (VDT) produce powerful dance theatre work ON STAGE, ON FILM and ONLINE.

Artistic Director/Choreographer Charlotte Vincent and her brilliant, multi-tasking ensemble have been moving people and making them think since 1994.

Unflinching in its desire to challenge and provoke, and named by The Observer as ‘one of the most important feminist artists working in Britain today’, Vincent creates brave, humorous and ‘astonishingly original’ (New York Times) productions with a ‘crackling intellectual core’ (The Observer).

VDT has broken the mould of middle scale touring to distribute its work on stage, on film and online an via our ENGAGEMENT PROGRAMME, using platforms that young people access every day. VDT’s latest programme of activity gives voice to what it’s like to live as a young person today and includes:

  • VIRGIN TERRITORY on stage London November 2016 & Paris May 2017 / on film throughout 2017/18
  • SHUT DOWN on stage November 28-29 2017 at The Place, London / 1-2 December Brighton / on film & online 2018
  • SHOW DOWN: an arts & social change conference March 2018
  • #VDTEverydayAction – VDT’s online social media campaign countering everyday sexism

Charlotte also delivers extensive MENTORING and PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT programmes, directs SPECIAL PROJECTS for other artists and regularly uploads INSIGHTS, REFLECTIONS and DEBATES that throw light onto her creative process to this site.

Vincent Dance Theatre is a National Portfolio Organisation, funded by Arts Council England. VDT is Associate Company at Brighton Dome. VDT and Yorkshire Dance are Artistic Partners.

‘Meticulously detailed, working across generations, it’s more than dance. Charlotte is shouting in the spaces that matter’ Judith Mackrell, Guardian Dance Critic
