DNA programme

The DNA (Dance North Associate/Artist) programme is an ongoing relationship and programme of support for a small number of independent artists and companies with whom we share an artistic resonance and cultural values. Our vision of DNA is of  interdependent, mutually beneficial relationships.

DNA aims to provide bespoke and responsive packages or programmes of support for individual artists and independent dance companies – developing practice and the making and presenting of work. Support may be offered in the form of commissions, residencies, administrative, partner building and/or producing support.

We are exploring how DNA artists fit or can feel part of the wider Dance North team, networking, advocating for and representing each other and the organisation.

DNA artists currently include:

Katrina McPherson
Gail Sneddon
Robbie Synge
Karl Jay-Lewin
Simone Kenyon
