Born and Bred Dance Theatre are based in Mossley, Greater Manchester. We live in a beautiful place so we find our inspiration locally, exploring our heritage, landscape and community through dance-based work.
We collaborate with other local artists of all disciplines to co-create our performances and projects, driven by our ambition to bring dance, art and creativity to as many people as possible. Feel free to peruse our website to learn more about what we do and how you can get involved.
Place was a one-day arts event organised in collaboration with the RSPB and a myriad of local artists. The aim of the event was to celebrate the ever-changing nature of Dove Stone’s beautiful landscape and the wildlife that calls it home. Born and Bred performed their site-specific work of the same title “PLACE”.
Dancestry was a unique collaboration between Born and Bred Dance Theatre and Saddleworth Museum that used dance to learn about and explore the local history of Saddleworth. We worked with five schools over three months to create dance works with a heritage focus to be performed at Uppermill Civic Hall.
