Back to: Who We Are
Izzy Brittain is a dance artist and poet who works across teaching, performing and making to empower individuals and communities. Her work is often interdisciplinary, intergenerational or participatory. Creative resistance and collective joy are at the heart of her practice, alongside a passion for access, representation and inclusion.
Izzy has completed interdisciplinary performance commissions The Book of Dave and Own the Crone, her poetry has been published in various magazines, anthologies and journals, and she is currently working towards her first pamphlet still witches. Izzy specialises in dance for older adults, including those living with dementia and/or Parkinson’s. She is lead artist for Yorkshire Dance’s Dance On programme in Leeds and also works with Ascendance Rep’s on Dancing with Parkinson’s.
On joining the Artist Advisory Group, Izzy said: “I believe that closer dialogue and grassroots listening between artists, community members and cultural organisations is essential to a healthy, vibrant and more equitable future for dance (and the arts in general). I am raring to go and ready to contribute to this process!”
