Motionhouse was founded by Kevin Finnan and Louise Richards in 1988. The company has since become one of the leading dance theatre companies in the UK making thier work locally, touring the work globally. They create startling, passionate dance theatre. The productions are designed to challenge as well as delight the audiences and they fuse images with action and dynamism. The performances are rooted in dance but draw on theatre, circus, acrobatics and film to create work that makes you think and feel. They tour the productions to theatres and festivals throughout the world. They’ve developed a reputation over the years for ambitious experimentation and thei productions, in which setting, action and context collide, have become world-renowned. A wide ranging education and participatory programme runs parallel to touring performance work. But it’s their audiences that are at the heart of everything they do and they pride themselves on producing shows of outstanding quality that are accessible and enjoyable for all. They have a strong, loyal fan base and they’ve previously won the ‘Audience Prize’ at both the Critics’ Circle National Dance Awards in the UK and at the MiramirO Festival in Belgium.
