The times They are a-changin'...

We have some very cool events coming up , and this brief blog is an intermediary!

On 3 December 2009 SDC will help launch Arts Council England  South East  Accentuate Project, at The Brighton Dome.

January 2010, SDC becomes company-in-residence at Bucks New University  We are excited about this new development , as SDC will finally have a home .We have invited Anjali Dance Company to also perform at the launch and really looking forward to working with the university.

The collective will have its own office, storage space, use of rehearsal and performance spaces.

The university team is already working with us on several mid to large scale projects , and we are keen to get going on the new ideas and new directions.

SDC are currently collaborating and planning projects with The Gate Theatre London, Ana Monro Theatre Company, Dance Aware, and Liz Porter (Porter Tales), Bucks New University, Bucks County Council and Talking Hands in N.L  for projects 2010 onwards. We will also be travelling to Amsterdam, Ljbljana and Budapest in the 2010. I will blog about the progress of the projects on DAO , and keep ya'll posted!  Watch this space!.

We are not PUGSY fans as you may have guessed!
