Yorkshire Dance is building a community of activists – from all walks of life – around performances addressing some of the big questions of our age.
Encounters will bring together inspiring dance artists with a diverse crowd to share food, conversation, participation and performance in Leeds. We’re welcoming everyone – those who don’t normally come to performances as well as those who frequently do.
We believe dance can make the world a better place. We know it can create deep connections between different sorts of people drawn together by seeing, and talking about, the kinds of works you’ll experience at Encounters.
We know the challenge is huge, and that Encounters is small, so each edition will focus on a particular element of a bigger theme. For this Encounters we reach out to a wider group of people, including families, in the investigation of gender diversity through dance, whilst celebrating the experiences of Trans and non-binary artists.
We invite you to join us in sparking new thinking, new conversation and new connectivity.
