Untold Dance Theatre

This intergenerational cast of seven women delve deep, dissect and spit out what it is to experience lack of confidence and self esteem. Through comedy and darkness the story is told.

Untold Dance Theatre is run by choreographer Vicki Hearne and is based in Bristol. The company consists of seven professional female dancers with an age range of 22 to 72. Untold’s ethos is to create engaging and relatable dance theatre that tells emotive, authentic and humorous stories,

The company’s new work Women-Wise reveals what it is like to experience a lack of confidence and self esteem as a woman and how, perhaps, we can find strength in each other. Created from real life stories from women’s groups around Bristol as well the performers themelves.

Sketch Dance Company
My Other Half

A story narrated through musical composition. An unspoken bond between two sisters separated at birth. In a world of uncertainty, meeting by chance. Will they find themselves in each other?

Founded in 2013, Sketch Dance Company produce contemporary dance theatre work that is designed to make audiences think, feel and be moved. Run by Artistic Director, Jasmine Andrews, they strive to blur the line between dance and theatre, through engaging with storytelling as a relatable avenue.

Their newest work, My Other Half tells the story of two young sisters separated at birth. Throughout the piece, the audience follows their lives side by side as they grow and learn about each other’s existence. Using a blend of contemporary storytelling and heartfelt composition, they present the tale of two sisters finding their roots.

'Jasmine Andrews demonstrates a sensitive directorial style and her choreography was often inventive and always expressive, fusing gesture and sweeping movement with a fine sense of theatre'
