Our programmes will resonate with the diverse communities of Wales and working with others we will ignite the spark of interest in dance with the widest range of promoters in every corner of the nation, building audiences for dance.

What We've Done

This high energy, vibrant piece captures the intensity of nature’s elements during a storm, set against the power generated by an alternative rock music concert.

Afterimage is a dance of fleeting images; that uses mirrors to create a unique and beautiful experience of appearance and disappearance. Afterimage shows the audience a series of scenes to evoke a personal response from each person without providing a single narrative.

Atalaÿ is a watch tower from which far off lands can be seen from four points; a contagious dance influenced by the warmth of the Mediterranean.

Bernadette by NDCWales’ resident choreographer Caroline Finn is like watching the outtakes from  Great British Bake off, both hilarious and really, very  tragic. This piece of comedic dance is very messy,  both physically and emotionally: flour and feelings  everywhere.

Codi is by Anthony Matsena who grew up in Swansea and is about Welsh people who come together to tackle isolation and depression during troubled times. It’s an energetic and uplifting dance about the strength of communities.

Écrit by Nikita Goile was inspired by a letter from iconic artist Frida Kahlo to her partner Diego.

Folk is a vintage fairy-tale, set in a rich fantastical world under the boughs of an upside-down tree, as darkly whimsical as it is enchanting.

Omertà is about the role of women in Italian Mafia society, and, historically, how their lives, experience and stories were often kept hidden.

A radical retelling of the 1917 surreal ballet Parade. This re imagining was performed as part of the Russia 17 season across Wales.

In this searingly beautiful and sensuous work for voice and body, dance and opera meld to form an intimate portrayal of the pain and passion of two lovers forced apart to separate worlds.

Pascal Dusapin's gleaming, shifting score, performed by the London Sinfonietta, conveys a timeless world within which the movement of dancers and singers can play out this universal story of grief and desire.

Playful, vibrant and provocative. Profundis dares us to ask questions about what things are, and what they are not. Roy Assaf's thoughtful movement is accompanied by whimsical wordplay a a soundtrack featuring Egypt's Umm Kulthum.

Delve into a world of ritual, decadence and excess inspired by iconic religious paintings. Curious characters come together, bringing their surroundings to life through charismatic and compelling choreography.

Rugby is a game that connects different communities across the country and in an international arena where Welsh bodies perform with power, passion and skill.

Rygbi: Annwyl / Dear by Fearghus Ó Conchúir celebrates rugby in Wales and highlights the hopes, glory and passion of rallying together on and off the pitch. Rygbi was created with input from rugby fans and players across Wales so that the dance really echoes the sport.

Rygbi: Annwyl i mi / Dear to me is a short outdoor dance performance that celebrates rugby in Wales and the hopes, glory and passion of rallying together on and off the pitch.

Rugby and dance are connected through their expertise in movement and through dedicated performances of power and emotion.

Caroline Finn takes us on a nostalgic journey, asking us to peer into The Green House. On a twisted TV set, characters discover the fine line between fantasy and reality.

They Seek To Find The Happiness They Seem is an exploration of the separation and disconnection that can occur within a relationship. It uses reconfigured snippets of imagery from popular culture that connect with us all on a subconscious level.

Tundra is a barren landscape where ultra-modern creativity blinks into life and tears pages from history books about Russian folk dance, the USSR and revolution.

Marcos Morau’s bold style draws inspiration from art and cinema. Tundra takes old ideas and uses contemporary dance to give them renewed meaning.

Tuplet is a swift, pulsating 18-minute tour de force for six dancers.
