An annual festival of inclusive dance, Expressions showcases the exciting work of community and professional disabled dance groups.

This year's Expressions festival has now passed - thank you to everyone who took part.

The UK’s leading inclusive dance company Candoco Dance Company  shared their digital creation Unspoken Spoken, directed and choreographed by Fin Walker, and hosted a Q&A with Dan Daw, Candoco's Associate Artistic Director and performer in Unspoken Spoken.

We also premièred Virtual Dancing, a new animated dance film by choreographer Jem Clancy including disabled dancers from across the north, which you can enjoy below.

Jem has created beautiful work for Expressions previously, including with Northern Ballet’s In Motion dancers in 2018 and a new solo work in 2019. Her lived experience of autism gives her choreography a uniqueness that is engaging for audiences of all backgrounds and was the perfect curtain raiser for the Candoco performance.
