We are delighted to announce that we have created a new supporting initiative in the company: Associate Artist New Directions alongside our Associate Artist position.
New Directions offers financial support and advice to a dance artist who is developing a new direction in their practice. We are very pleased to launch this initiative with Katherine O’Malley as recipient and excited to see where this journey will bring her.
