Urgent search for dancers

As part of the Benchmark project, I will be creating a short piece to be performed as part of ResTec, an evening of dance to raise awareness of AIDS and HIV. For this piece I will need some dancers who are prepared to work fairly quickly and collaboratively. A background in contemporary dance styles is necessary.

Dancers will need to be available for the following dates and times:

Research, creation and rehearsal:
October 17th (10-1pm), 24th (10-1pm), 28th (2-5pm), 29th (10-1pm), 31st (10-1pm)
November 7th (10-1pm), 14th & 21st (time TBC), 28th (10-1pm)

Pre-performance sharing:
Wednesday 16th November OR Thursday 17th November (TBC) (5:30-8:30pm)

Tech and Dress:
Monday 28th and/or Tuesday 29th November (time TBC)

Tuesday 29th November (matinee and evening)

Most rehearsals will take place at Space@Clarence Mews. The performance is at Stratford Circus.

Travel expenses within London will be covered and there is an additional (modest) fee available - this will be agreed and finalised upon selection.

If you are interested, please email me at with a short introduction of yourself and your availability as soon as possible, preferably before Sunday 16th October.



I have been lucky enough to be invited to be part of Benchmark 2016 - 2017, an artist development project supported by NewVIc and Arts Council England. The project will culminate in performances at Stratford Circus Arts Centre (29th November, part of ResTec) and NewVIc (January/February 2017 at the launch of the new theatre).

I am using this opportunity to re-launch Piece by Piece. Although never completely gone, there have been periods when the company has been dormant recently - for many reasons - as well as a recent focus on solo work. But this changes now! For the aforementioned performances, I am creating a short group piece for which I require dancers. This post outlines what I'm looking for, time commitment and what is on offer in exchange.
