The Company

 

WAYNE PARSONS DANCE

Wayne Parsons Dance creates work that is, at its heart, all about storytelling.

We harness a sophisticated physicality and combine this with new writing to tell contemporary stories that reflect the world we live in today.

By drawing from the approaches of both theatre and dance, we present accessible works that celebrate the spoken word and the moving body.

Storytelling is what we do, movement and text is how we do it.

 


 

Wayne Parsons Dance has a clear focus on the development of new writing as well as choreography. Each new creation for the company starts with the development of a script that is taken into the studio and from which our dance-theatre productions are  created.

Collaboration is key to what we make. Music, sound, design, spoken text, new writing and choreography all come together to tell stories. Each reliant on the other, all layering the story to create a fully immersive experience.
