Based in the UK, Tandem Works supports artist and companies working across a range of art forms including dance, theatre, live art, sound installation and public art. We have a specialism in dance and dance for young audiences.
The artists we support often use multiple forms of artistic expression to make their work, work that sits in-between the boundaries of form, in-between the meeting points of cultures and in–between the visual and textual languages of expression.
We have a passion for giving a voice to those who are rarely heard within our mainstream cultural ecology.
Projects range from one person shows to site specific multi-disciplinary productions to national and international tours, co-productions and strategic interventions.
The artists and companies we support have won the Oxford Samuel Becket Theatre Trust Award (mars.tarrab), the Total Theatre Award for Innovation and Experimentation (Rachel Mars), Best Production, Theatre and Technology Awards (Tom Dale Company), the Arts Foundation Children’s Theatre Shortlist Award (Second Hand Dance) and been presented as part of the prestigious British Council Edinburgh Fringe Showcase (Tom Dale Company).
Our current portfolio includes: Second Hand Dance, Rachel Mars New Art Club and Anatomical.
