South East Dance has appointed four Artists to be Associates for the next two years. Subathra Subramaniam, Lucy Cash, Charlie Morrissey and Ben Wright will each receive a package of financial and administrative support and will be able to collaborate with Creative Producer, writer and director Chris Fogg, who has just joined South East Dance, from Take Art, the arts development agency for Somerset.

Subathra Subramaniam is an independent choreographer working in Bharata Natyam . She is also a qualified science teacher and has worked with various arts and science collaborations. She said : “I am thrilled to be a part of this scheme. It will give me the support needed at this time in my career to develop my own choreographic voice and continue to work in a great region with some fantastic artists. I want to continue to bring and develop more South Asian dance opportunities in the region too”.

Lucy Cash is an interdisciplinary artist and choreographer. She is a Screen Dance Fellow with South East Dance (09/10) and has been an Associate Artist with Artsadmin.

Charlie Morrissey works with live movement based performance in site specific, gallery and theatre settings. He said “I am really excited about this opportunity and can’t wait to get going. I want to use this opportunity to train and work with exemplary artists from within this region and beyond on the national and international scene, and to expand and develop the clarity, quality and reach of the work I do”.
