FATHoM Project

FATHoM Project

FATHoM Project (Dance)

The FATHoM Project collective present ‘Slight’ - a rich and diverse tapestry of dance, live music, song, film, and dramatic elements.

The FATHoM Project came into existence in February 2004 after 3 dancers from CandoCo were brought to the North East by Dance City to mentor Caroline Bowditch and work with artists with an interest in inclusive dance.

Following that week, 6 professional artists, including Caroline, decided to come together and create the FATHoM project, and in August 2007, became a community interest company.

Since then they have been, laying down strong foundations, nurturing their creative development by linking individual practices and exploring the issues of working collectively. The company have developed works funded by Arts Council England and performed many times in the region building a loyal audience. FATHoM continue to work running creative sessions with community & education groups.

The company aims to raise the profile of inclusive and diverse dance and arts practices throughout the UK with this new high quality work. With its international cast of performers with and without disabilities this diverse collective promotes high quality, innovative and original performance work, which includes disabled and non-disabled artists.
