stage@leeds is pleased to be working with Forget About the Dog theatre company and Devika Dance Theatre under our Associate Artists programme.
Forget About The Dog have been associate artists since 2018. The company was founded by some of our very own graduates from The School of Performance and Cultural Industries at the University of Leeds. Forget About The Dog describe themselves as a Leeds based, new-writing theatre company dedicated to cohesive nonsense, thought provoking whimsy and well made tea. Their work is inventive, reflective and often very funny.
Devika Rao is a classical dance artist whose work fuses traditional Indian folk-dance including Bharatanatyam, Kuchipudi and Yakshagana with cutting edge theatrical lighting, video and animation. Devika creates innovative and modern dance steeped in tradition.
In addition to her work as a choreographer and dance artist Devika is also an experienced dance teacher. DRDT Dance Academy offers children and adult’s access to Indian arts, through music and dance.
