ACE Funding Success and Summer Performance Programme

Chisenhale Dance is delighted to have been successful in our Arts Council National Lottery Project Grant application for 'Championing and Changing', supporting a year long programme boosting our outward-facing role as East London’s champion of experimentation in dance, Member-focussed artist development opportunities and continuing organisational change.

Following the success of last Autumn's 35th anniversary season, we're pleased to announce a new season of performances and special events, which marks the establishment of an annual two-season performance programme.

Future Fridays will return in April, our regular programme of new work led by Chisenhale Dance Members. Join us for a first look at seven projects which shun conventions and face the future of performance head-on. Including evenings initiated by Symoné, Galit Criden, Jia-yu Corti, Marguerite Galizia, Joseph Morgan Schofield, Margaret Dewes and Jane Chan.

Finally we are thrilled to announce our next Guest Performance - Priya Mistry's Tropical Awkward Bastard, at the end of June

See you soon,
CDS Team
