Raised is Leeds’ only integrated dance collective, including adults with and without disabilities. It works collaboratively to create dance theatre that is relevant, political and personal.

“This was a game-changing year for us. We were inspired by guest artists Gary Clarke, David Toole and Rachel Liggitt, and skilfully guided by regular facilitators Zoe Parker and Rachel Fullegar, to create a new performance piece: You, Me and Us. Performance venues have included the West Yorkshire Playhouse (Beyond Festival), the Stanley & Audrey Burton Theatre, Yorkshire Dance and Dance City in Newcastle. We’ve been delighted with the positive feedback from audiences, and thanks to continued and vital support from Yorkshire Dance and Arts Council England we look forward to creating more new work and sharing our vision even more widely.”
