HeadSpaceDance has just produced a video trailer for their production If Play Is Play to promote their tour this autumn. Click here to watch the trailer.


HeadSpaceDance and If Play Is Play have been nominated in three categories in the 15th National Dance Awards: Best Independent Company; Dancing Times Best Male Dancer (Jonathan Goddard); and Outstanding Female Performance (Modern) (Clemmie Sveaas).

Following on from Three and Four Quarters in 2012, If Play Is Play is the second production from HeadSpace, brainchild of pedigree dancers Christopher Akrill and Charlotte Broom, formerly with Cullberg Ballet, Northern Ballet and numerous Royal Ballet/ROH2 productions.

If Play Is Play was first presented in April 2014 in the Linbury Theatre by the Royal Ballet Studio programme, and goes on tour this autumn. The three part programme consists of new work by Johan Inger (former Artistic Director of Cullberg Ballet), Luca Silvestrini (founder Artistic Director of Protein) and director Matthew Dunster.
