Yorkshire Dance is delighted to announce that our Sketch programme is back, once again with the astonishingly talented Peggy Olislaegers.

As a part of this third instalment of Sketch, we are running this introductory workshop to give artists the opportunity to get a flavour of what dramaturgy, and Peggy’s unique approach to it, is all about.

This is a great opportunity for anyone interested in applying for the Sketch 3 programme, giving you the chance to get to know Peggy and her way of working.

Two artists, Ella Mesma and Hannah Buckley, received bursaries to make work and take part in Sketch 2in 2015.

Contemporary dancer and B-Girl Ella Mesma developed her work Ladylike, an investigation of cultural assumptions and stereotypes around gender and behavioural expectations in salsa and hip hop.

Hannah Buckley’s S/HE is a dance performance about equality. Influenced by men, women, science fiction and everything in-between, it questions the state of gender equality on Earth and seeks to create a new reality.


Yorkshire Dance chose six artists to take part in Sketch between September 2014 and February 2015.
