We are a small team at heart, with a wide network of collaborators.

Established in 2010, we have delivered over 15 projects with exceptional artists with Down’s Syndrome (DS), reaching over 2.5 million people. We choreograph, produce and promote social/cultural happenings and events.
Our most recent project is a dance residency at the Royal Opera House, Covent Garden creating a 2 parts ballet with live score, performed by award winning artists with Down Syndrome and dancers of the Royal Ballet. We are in partnership with Hackney Showroom, developing a new version of Beckett’s Waiting for Godot.
Culture Device Dance Project is an innovative dance company for professional dancers with DS.
We use improvisation and experimental electronic sound to push the boundaries of choreography, whilst giving a professional platform for performers with DS. Drag Syndrome is our project showcasing performance by drag queens and kings with DS which enjoys huge press coverage.
