201 Dance Company have launched a Kickstarter campaign to help take their new show Smother to the Edinburgh Fringe.
201 Dance Co is a new company bringing together experienced artists and producers to create daring new work that is socially responsive and accessible. The company was founded by Andrea Walker who began his dancing career in Rome, Italy aged 14.
The company's ethos centres around creating challenging dance-theatre that crosses urban and contemporary genres. We are driven to confront controversial issues and challenge social prejudices, and through ‘If You Leave’ will begin to partner with advocacy and outreach charities to use exceptional dance theatre as a vehicle for engaging audiences in topical social issues.
The company is seeking financial assistance to cover costs including rehearsal space, costumes, lights and travel to Edinburgh Fringe.
