RECRUITING- Seeking young people for our next performances:

Are you interested in trying something new and exciting? DFDC are looking for young people to join them for their next performances on board a light vessel ship- LV21. You do not need any prior experience, just an enthusiasm to try something new! You will work with choreographer Daisy Farris and a team of professional dancers to develop a performance piece inspired by The Great Thames Disaster. This will be performed on board LV21 alongside the professional dancers. To get involved, email Daisy: info@dfdcollective.co.uk

It’s coming…all aboard!

We are taking over LV21 to create a site-specific performance experience. Here is a sneak peek on the top deck! Limited audience capacity so book now via The Woodville box office.
