CORONAVIRUS: All UK venues closed on 16th March 2020 and there is currently no planned re-opening time though it will not be before 1st June 2020 and is most likely to be September (according to some West End producers). Some shows have been cancelled, or closed early, but many are being rescheduled and we are trying to keep up with the changes - assume that anything posted for April and May is actually postponed or cancelled. Pantomimes are possible but a few venues and shows may not return and larger venues and tours are unlikely to re-appear before 2021.


Performed at night on a rooftop in London, Of Riders and Running Horses draws us into an exhilarating and visceral ad hoc ceremony. It conjures up a new kind of old dance to animate city spaces. Created by Still House for six female dancers and a live band, the performers dance to an insistent rhythm, reminding us of the exhilarating power that comes from moving together. Bristol based theatre-maker and choreographer Dan Canham has been co-commissioned by Dance Umbrella to create Of Riders and Running Horses. Influenced by film, theatre, music and dance, what lies at the heart of Dan's work is a sense of refreshing authenticity, and a visually poetic exploration into the collective imagination of performers and audiences. The music, composed and played live by Luke Harney (AKA Typesun) and Sam Halmarack, was created in the rehearsal room both inspiring, and being inspired by, the choreography.
