Nottdance takes place in Nottingham every two years, presenting a programme 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, offering 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. In Nottdance 2022 themes of touch, care, decolonisation, personal archives and labour were present.

With the creation of FABRIC there an opportunity to collaborate with partners, artists and Nottingham 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.
