In autumn 2012 we ran our first fundraising campaign , towards our new festival show, Captive, which is inspired by stories and images of Guantanamo, Gulag, extraordinary rendition, and Rainer Maria Rilke’s 1902 poem The Panther, about a caged animal which is almost numbed.  We premiered the show in summer 2013 and toured to rave reviews thoughout the UK.

With your help, we raised £1921 (including Gift Aid) towards specialist costumes for the dancers performing Captive. Thank you to everyone who generously made donations; those who gave £25.00 or more are listed below.  

You can make a donation at any time towards our work, by clicking the button below. Don't forget, any donations you make now will be matched by the Arts Council as part of their Catalyst scheme.
