Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, VDT has made the difficult decision to furlough key members of staff until September 2020.

Online activity will resume this autumn with Shut Down online as part of an Insight Series for Motus Dance in September and In Loco Parentis streamed in partnership with several UK venues in October.

In the meantime explore VDT work across our YouTube Channel https://www.youtube.com/user/Vincentdt (please watch and subscribe) and keep up to date as things develop via our social media or sign up to the VDT enews.

Stay safe and thanks as always for your ongoing support.

Charlotte Vincent CEO / Artistic Director


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.

‘Vincent delivers forceful messages through her poetic and political dance theatre.’      Josephine Leask, London Dance

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.

VDT is a National Portfolio Organisation, funded by Arts Council England and based in Brighton, UK. VDT is also a Dream Artist at Pavilion Dance South West and an Associate Company at Brighton Dome.


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