Nottdance returns for 2022, bringing you a season of dance and choreographic ideas and works.

As a site for experimentation, Nottdance has and continues to be a context to explore new ideas and new approaches in dance and choreography. Sharing great works from artists whose home, place of work or international destination is Nottingham, this Nottdance season will offer performances, discussions, workshops and social events for our communities near and far.

Inhabiting the city’s theatres, galleries, shopping centres and outdoor spaces, all the works reflect on the city and world we live in. Themes of touch, care, decolonisation, personal archives and labour are present as celebrate being back together with live events in Nottdance 2022.

This season has been imagined and will be brought to life in collaboration with artists, our partners and neighbours taking place during the month of October from Wednesday 5 through to Saturday 29 2022.

As we close the chapter on Dance4 and open a new one with FABRIC, we’re collaborating with partners, artists and our city to explore what the future of Nottdance can be. Much has happened in recent years; we’ve tried some different approaches and as producers and custodians of the festival we will be asking questions and holding conversation to consider the development of Nottdance. No matter the frame, Nottdance shall continue to be a cultural offer for Nottingham, a programme to celebrate the globally formed community that call the city home.
