New stretch target

We are so happy to be able to say we reached our initial target - but to keep momentum going and to help us be able to pay all our artists and contributors fairly, we're going for the big 2K! If we reach this target we will be able to invest in the future of Outset Dance and our outreach ideas, and ensure that Check Out My Shirt has the best run it can possibly have... help us achieve this! 


Outset Dance is taking a new show, Check Out My Shirt, to Brighton Fringe 2017 - and we need to raise £1300 to get there!

Check Out My Shirt is a dance theatre performance that takes the audience on journey with two performers as they navigate what it means to be faced with life defining decisions. The performers are joined on stage by a myriad of sh*t shirts that we come to see are the consequences of their decisions along their chosen path. Touching both on their own personal choices, and the choices of the masses, they'll show you a snapshot of the future. Outset dance will show you the alternative route. This show is a little bit dark, a little bit funny, and very physical! 

On 20 and 21 May 2017, Outset Dance are going to be performing at Studio 2, The Warren as part of Brighton Fringe. This is our first fringe and we are incredibly excited, but a fringe comes with a lot of costs, and we would really appreciate your help in covering them. 

Here's a quick breakdown of all our costs:

We believe that performing in the fringe will act as a springboard for Outset Dance. We have big things in the pipeline for the coming year, but we can't achieve them without a little success under our belts already. Performing as our own company has been something both of us have aspired to do for some time now, and we're so close! 


A little about Outset Dance...

Formed in 2016, Outset Dance was created by Sidonie Carey-Green and Rebecca Thompson. Although in its infancy, this professional performance company strives to deliver performances, workshops and creative other opportunities to those who do not often have direct access to them in and around Kent and South East of England. Outset Dance aims to fill the gap that is so often overlooked.

Sidonie Carey-Green

A Kent-based dance artist and filmmaker. Sidonie currently works as a self-employed artist, teaching for universities and youth companies across the South East, and choreographing regularly. She currently holds a Masters Degree in Creative Practice from Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance. Her work is rooted in bringing dance and art to audiences and locations that would not usually have access to such work – and therefore she works heavily with site-specific projects and public art.

Rebecca Thompson 

A community dance artist based in Tunbridge Wells, Kent. Rebecca strives to deliver inclusive and nurturing dance to creatively deprived areas, and harness it to help others. Since graduating with a BA (Hons) Contemporary Dance from Newcastle College’s Performance Academy, she created and delivered performances, issue based workshops, and events across Sussex and Kent. She is a member of Loop Dance Company’s collective – recently choreographing/performing on Chatham Pier for Big Dance for Loop, and performing in The Smallest House Mouse and The Christmas Cat.


We're also going to work with oh so talented composer Ben Zucker - and we'd love to be able to pay him for all his hard work!
