Kate Flatt Projects

Kate Flatt Projects provides an umbrella for a growing portfolio of distinctive dance theatre works which feature talented dancers and performers, with integrated design concepts and high production values. Wherever possible, new works for Kate Flatt Projects are created with live music, and have featured songs and text.
Ballroom of Joys and Sorrows (2012) and Oss and the Ox (in development) reflect her passion for narrative and ritual themes drawing on traditional dance and music sources, which engage audiences through community participation work. Soul Play (2010) and Slowburn (in development) deal with emotional resonance, subtle interplay between characters and a sense of mystery woven into the choreography.

Since 2009, Kate has been a Creative Associate at Watford Palace Theatre, where she has developed and toured ‘Soul Play’ (2010), ‘Songs from a Hotel Bedroom’ (2010), and ‘Ballroom of Joys and Sorrows’ (2012). Other recent commissioning partners include ROH 2, Segue Productions, Ipswich New Wolsey, Colchester Mercury, Trestle Arts Base, Greenwich Dance, EFDSS and The Junction in Cambridge.

Collaborators: Kate Flatt’s recent creative collaborators have include composer and percussionist Adriano Adewale, music director and arranger James Holmes, writer Anna Reynolds, designers Chloe Lamford, Hayley Grindle and Joanna Parker; lighting designers Anna Watson and Kathryn Williams; sound designer Dan Frost and digital artist Ian Galloway of Mesmer; associate Choreographers Amir Giles and Yael Lowenstein.
