Hidden Dance is 3rd Stage’s touring company. It was developed in 2013 with Support from Arts Council England. The company provides those core members of 3rd Stage the opportunity for further career development. It also plays a key role in enabling the 3rd Stage experience to reach a wider audience. Part of this initiative involves the downscaling of current repertoire to a portable scale. Bespoke pieces are also created for the company. These are created by in-house practitioners as well as specially invited Guest Choreographers.
Hidden Dance’s first performance was at Exeter’s Northcott Theatre. Since then they have performed at the Redgrave Theatre ,Bristol, Bristol Harbor Festival, The Guild Hall, Bath and the Tobacco Factory, Bristol.
Their first work with a Guest Choreographer was through the creation of The Parting, by Kerry Biggin (Principal Dancer and Rehearsal Director for Mathew Bourne’s New Adventures). This particular work continues to build and has become the basis of a new project entitled, ‘Mementos’ (please see ‘current projects’ for more information).
