Damn Fine Dance is a London based performing company working with dancer’s over the age of 60, co directed by Molly Wright and Luke Birch.
Drawing from the vast experience and generosity of our performers we challenge notions of how older people are presented as dancers. We present older performers as equally vibrant, courageous and dance exuberant as any other company regardless of age or ability.
We meet weekly to explore a practice that encompasses a somatic approach to improvisation. With this approach we bring a richer depth of knowledge into our performance work.
We empower our dancers by giving them the tools to not only perform set choreography but to have the confidence to be creatively engaged throughout their own process.
Through work that is contemporary and avant-garde in its nature we hope to shine a new light on this generation of performers. We aim to discover more about how we can enrich and progress what we do as a company and consolidate and refine the nature of our performance work.
We cultivate in our performers honesty, integrity, embodiment and curiosity.
