Vincent Dance Theatre (VDT) makes crucial performance for the critical times in which we live.
Acclaimed as ‘funny, fearless and flintily determined, Vincent is one of the most important feminist artists working in Britain today’ (The Observer, UK), creating ‘astonishingly original’ (New York Times) productions with a ‘crackling intellectual core’ (The Guardian, UK).
Artistic Director Charlotte Vincent and her brilliant, cross-generational ensemble have been ‘moving people and making them think’ since 1994, distributing productions on stage, on film and online to place the work at the heart of public debate. In Loco Parentis tours in March 2020, and again in autumn. The film installation of its companion work, Art of Attachment, will premiere in May 2020. See tour dates on VDT’s calendar.

VDT’s productions make significant claims for gender politics, and increasingly for social change. Productions are formed from a socially engaged research process and accompanied by a wide range of Participation activity, including; Professional Development, Social Engagement, Teaching & Learning & Dialogue & Debate.
Vincent also mentors a range of emerging and mid-career artists, and is widely acknowledged for supporting parenting in performing arts and campaigning for gender equality through all the company’s work, both on and off the stage.
