Putting on a production is more than getting the right dancers and choreographers in place. Set, Costume, Lighting and Sound all play a valuable role in both supporting the vision and increasing the context for your work. In our Design for Dance series we've partnered with Junk Ensemble, to present four workshops with the creative team of their new work to give you a closer insight into these elements.

Denis will discuss his career to date in dance and theatre as well as his approach to working on 'Soldier Still' with examples from the production.
