We believe dance and life are symbiotic with eachother.
Eliot Smith Company (ESC) is an international touring contemporary dance company based in Newcastle upon Tyne; North East of England led by Artistic Director & gifted dancer Eliot Smith. ESC was founded in 2011 and was officially launched in 2012.
The company repertory consist of Eliot's movement vocabulary built on strength, physical speed and rich emotional narratives. His music choice combines rhythmic excitement, raw emotional power and spiritual meditation. Eliot enjoys working in non traditional performance venues such as cathedrals and local memorial halls, as he believes they are theatres in their own unique way.
The company prides itself from a dance language rooted from Eliot Smith's previous dance training with both London Contemporary Dance School and The Martha Graham School of Contemporary Dance, and continually evolves to communicate ideas that are intelligent, beautiful and new.
Over the passed five years ESC has independently toured extensively across the North East of England and other parts of the UK and Europe during the Spring season. ESC premieres new works in the Summer and Winter season, including regular dance performances at leading national events and exhibitions, coinciding with there Education & Beyond programme.
Eliot Smith Company is currently in residence at The Barre Studios located on the Quayside, Newcastle.
