Company Policy
Directed by award winning choreographer Yael Flexer and digital artist Nic Sandiland, Dance & Digital Works produces live and digital installation work, alongside an extensive programme of commissions and tailor-made training for youth and community groups and professional development settings.

Previously associated artists with Woking Dance Festival (2010), both Yael and Nic have presented their work throughout the UK and internationally over the last 18 years. The company works with a variety of partners in developing and delivering its work including: Woking Dance Festival, University of Chichester, Swindon Dance, Oxford Festival, Greenwich Dance, The Landsdown Centre for Electronic Arts, Middlesex University and Bewegungs Art, Germany. Other funders and commissioners of work have included: Arts Council England, The British Council and West Sussex County Council.

Yael and Nic’s work centres on the generating of a sense of intimacy in live performance and digital installation, in a way which acknowledges the physicality and presence of the viewer. Works offer acute observations on the everyday and the mundane using pedestrian movement and gesture as well as working with dancers and non-dancers as performers within digital works.

Previously, Jerwood award winner Yael Flexer was Artistic Director of Bedlam Dance Company, under which she created critically acclaimed contemporary dance over a period of 16 years.
