Dash Arts creates artistic experiences that change the way we see the world. Founded in 2005 by Artistic Directors, Josephine Burton and Tim Supple, Dash Arts has rapidly emerged as a unique international creative force, producing new theatre, dance, music and art events in collaboration with exceptional artists from abroad.
Dash Arts travels across continents to shed new light on great cultures and creates work through intensive periods of Research and Development. Our next major project is an artistic journey through the diverse lands, people, stories and cultures of the former Soviet Union. This will culminate in a series of new works created in collaboration with artists from the region.
