Hack Ballet

Founded in 2012 by choreographer Briar Adams and dancers (including original company members Thomas McCann and Natasha Usmar) Hack Ballet strikes a balance between classical form, contemporary energy and emotional passion. The company operates as an artistic collective headed by Adams, and has grown in scope and influence in the London scene, attracting talented artistic collaborators and producers to expand our vision.

Our EdFringe 2018 production team includes co-producer Jim Croxford from @TheatreBench, filmmaker and arts philanthropist Thom Seaman from the Royal Opera House, with a cast of multi-talented dancers from around the world.

Adams, Hack Ballet and TheatreBench have secured two amazing venues at EdFringe to present our diverse programmes, giving us a great platform to showcase the range and skills of our team.

The, not one, but TWO shows we are bringing to EdFringe are:

Hack Ballet – Elicitations @Greenside Jade Studio

August 3rd-11th & 13th-18th

A beautiful, intense and emotional contemporary ballet triple bill

AND……

Les Odalisques – Full Throttle @Underbelly Cowgate

August 14th – 19th

A riotously irreverent romp through ballet’s dirty laundry. Co-Produced by @TheatreBench

Our mission

We strongly believe in embracing socially progressive values and fostering diversity and empowerment of the artists we work with. These two ballet influenced programmes demonstrate a broad spectrum of themes and issues, weaving lived experience of modern love, PTSD, and the controversial #metoo movement, with gorgeous dance movement, humour and thought provoking drama. Our work touches on deeply human experiences of love, loss, identity, and belonging.

Hack Ballet creates an expressive language to connect meaningfully with our audience’s deepest fears and desires. In doing so we attract a diverse audience, appealing to people who are moved to the core by the unique strength of contemporary ballet to connect with people, physically and emotionally.

 

Future Plans

Hack Ballet are on the move and we are planning some wonderfully creative dance experiences to bring to you over our 2018 – 19 season.

After our 21 dates in Edinburgh, we are planning:

  • A possible appearance at Burning Seed, NSW, in September 2018
  • Performances in Melbourne, Sydney, Adelaide and Perth in January 2019
  • To expand our education programme, with regular classes and workshops for professional dancers, adult dancers and dance students, in the UK and Australia
  • To expand our advocacy and community development programme around our core themes (#creativity, #metoo, #mentalhealth, #safedance), especially developing partnerships within the health and research sectors
  • To start Research and Development for a new work
  • To solidify relationships with our partners and improve our long term outlook as a company

And last but not least…. THANKYOU!

We would like to say a huge thankyou to everyone who has been there for us since the beginning, for your support and appreciation.

If you’ve come this far, you definitely need to hit the Back This Project button and get involved! You might be thinking… I’m not sure… is this for me… I don’t know if I can do it! That’s completely normal and absolutely fine that you should feel that way… Everyone feels a little bit of stage fright just before going on to make their debut performance! If it wasn’t important, you wouldn’t care this much. So take a deep breath and hit the Back This Project Button now! You’ll feel so good once you do, and you’ll know you are about to take a step #IntoTheUnknown with us. It’s going to be great!

Every little helps… even if you can only help with the cost of a coffee, it’s really important for us to know that you care. Working with bigger organisations like the Arts Council requires that you, our community, show your support and interest in practical ways so we know that we are developing our work in a direction that you value.

Please contribute in whatever way you can. Come on this awesome journey with us… let’s see where it takes us!
