Who Are We?
Autin Dance Theatre is an award-winning, interdisciplinary touring company based in Birmingham.
Autin Dance Theatre is a collaborative ensemble of creatives who devise & produce aspirational, socially engaged & mass participatory movement projects regionally & internationally. Autin Dance Theatre’s distinctive artistic voice draws on contemporary social issues (environment, community, relationships & identities) to make engaging, accessible, relevant performance work.
We aim to inspire, educate & instigate positive social change through highly responsive, multi-disciplinary art in theatres, outdoors & non-traditional spaces.
Our work ranges from extensive touring of our sensational outdoor show featuring a 13ft-tall puppet at international festivals to publishing children’s books about saving the ocean.
We lead CPD training for teachers & local creatives, deliver artistic commissions for professionals & vocational students across the UK & mass-participation community-led project like ‘Big Brum Boogie’. Our collaborative approach & company culture is people-focused, inclusive, socially conscious, & radical in its approach..
