Create. Debate. Celebrate.
A virtual festival for 2020

2020 marks the 42nd year of Dance Umbrella. Although the festival in its usual format has not been possible, we couldn’t miss the chance to celebrate the work of contemporary choreographers this year.

Join us online in November for workshops, discussions, debates and even a party. We are bringing together artists from across the globe for intimate conversations; taking a behind the scenes look at the choreographic process; debating the pressing topics of the day; running choreographic workshops for different ages and closing it all with an almighty digital disco.

We’re delighted to be welcoming back artists from recent Dance Umbrella festivals, alongside some exciting new creatives.

As part of the festival, we are very excited to launch our first ever digital residency, Home Made. This Autumn we’ll be joined by three world-class choreographers: Satchie Noro, Annie B Parson and Kenrick Sandy, and you have the chance to create choreography with them. We’re looking for families, adults and adults aged 60+ to take part, so if you enjoy dancing and creating your own moves around the home, find out how you can get involved.

2020 also sees the return of Studio Sessions, a unique opportunity for national and international industry professionals to watch work from UK and Ireland based creatives well before it hits the stage. This year, each Studio Session will be curated by a different artist, including Oona Doherty and Seeta Patel.
