About 201 Dance Company

“This is the new generation of street dance” – The Times


201 creates dance-theatre productions that are accessible, socially responsive and challenge prejudices. Our work brings stories of queer, trans and immigrant experience and mental health to diverse audiences.


Since 2015 our UK tours of ‘Smother’ and ‘SKIN’ have reached over 17,000 UK audiences in over 30 venues (“one of the year’s finest treats” - Huffington Post). We’re now adapting Michael Rosen's "Sad Book", commissioned by Everyman Cheltenham and supported by The Old Market, exploring depression and incorporating digital animation.


International work includes commissions by Joffrey Ballet to create ‘HOME’, exploring queer immigrant experience, which played to over 20,000 people with nightly standing ovations in Chicago (“Hauntingly Effective” –Chicago Sun Times).


Our digital work and outreach workshops have reached thousands of participants, exploring our fusion of dance styles, storytelling in dance, and queer experience in dance.



This is a freelance position with a guaranteed fee of £3400 (based on 20 working days at £170 per day) with potential to expand.
