StopGAP Dance Company

StopGAP Dance Company

StopGAP present Portfolio Collection (Dance)

StopGAP is an integrated professional contemporary dance company which has dancers with and without disabilities.

StopGAP prestent a critically acclaimed selection of seven dance pieces that showcase a wide range of dance styles by international choreographers.

For decibel, the set showcases three sections of the work, with choreography by Hofesh Shechter, Rob Tannion (Stan Won’t Dance) and Gary Clarke (all UK based choreographers).

Wrapped with flashes of sequins and strewn with blood red roses, this is a theatrical explosion of high-quality athletic dance, graphic lighting and stylish vampish costumes. With music ranging from Tarantino-style sounds to a Spanish lament (to a dead dog!), it is a dance feast.
