Vincent Dance Theatre are critically acclaimed for translating real-life testimonies into beautifully crafted performance work.

Reflecting on a universal human need to be looked after, to be safe and to belong the production demands that their stories be heard.
"What gives Vincent’s work its power is that it is born not of hot-housed theory but of lived experience. It comes from the heart and that’s not always a pretty place." - The Observer
