Chisenhale Dance Space is East London’s championing experimentation in dance and performance. We’re an artist Member-led organisation, based in Bow for more than 35 years. Our programme is made by, with, and in response to our Members, and currently consists of:

  • subsidised-cost rehearsal space for making
  • classes for children and adults
  • artist development programmes
  • a boundary-pushing performance programme in our venue and beyond
  • outreach and education projects in Tower Hamlets


“Chisenhale showcases edgy work”

“A home for artists experimenting with ideas outside the mainstream.”
