VDT Film Screenings- available to book now

About the offer

Vincent Dance Theatre (VDT) produces powerful socially engaged dance theatre work on stage, on film and online, accompanied by extensive programmes of participation activities.

We apply our productions in a variety of contexts and settings to raise debate and foster understanding of the issues explored in the work, and seek to engage new audiences through the wider distribution of our films and participation programme.

VDT has three dance theatre films: In Loco Parentis, Art of Attachment and Hold Tight available for arts venues, universities and/or cinemas to book as in person or online screenings throughout 2023/24. The films are high quality on stage captures of the live productions and can be screened in isolation or as a facilitated event accompanied by participatory workshops to open up discussions about the themes in the work.

In Person Screenings

VDT’s work on film can be screened in person as part of a venue season, festival programme or as part of a related university course.

VDT can offer stand alone in person screenings or accompany the screening with engagement activities and/or a Q&A to raise debate and foster understanding of the issues explored in the work. Engagement activities can be bespoke to each venue/group the company works with.

Past & Upcoming In Person Screenings

In May 2023, VDT worked in partnership with the University of Brighton to deliver a screening of Art of Attachment accompanied by creative engagement sessions. This half day event was delivered to graduate social workers, exploring the value of creativity for themselves and their clients reflecting particularly on emotional labour.

The fee to licence each individual work for an in person screening is £1000 + VAT. Facilitated workshops with engagement activities and/or an in person Q&A can be offered for an additional £500 + VAT.
