Stopgap Dance Company seamlessly integrates dancers with and without disabilities. Our work is fuelled by the new and exciting possibilities that arise from the dialogue between distinctive dancers.
We believe that integrated dance offers exceptional creative opportunities, and we are committed to sharing these via creative learning projects, publications, and by touring our original productions nationally and internationally.
Stopgap Dance Company’s productions are devised by our dancers and collaborators, working as an ensemble under the artistic direction of Lucy Bennett:
“With our work, we seek to offer a window into a parallel world where human interdependence, strength and vulnerability play out with poetic realism.”
We are able to create work that is exceptional only because we are integrated. Difference is our means and our method.
Stopgap Dance Company is a British company and works in partnership with the Arts Council England as a National Portfolio Organisation. We are also a resident company of Farnham Maltings and an associate artist of Zinc Arts.
