Skin

This is not my body. This is not my body. This is not my body.

After the sell-out international tour of Smother, 201’s contemporary hip hop ensemble returns with Skin: a boy’s journey through gender transition.

Fusing urban and contemporary styles with an original score, award winning choreographer Andrea Walker directs a cast of seven dancers in a fast paced, emotionally driven story of identity and belonging.

201 Dance Company brings together experienced artists and producers to create daring new work that is socially responsive and accessible. Our artists share a drive to tell stories that matter and give a voice to underrepresented groups, while bringing striking and original dance to diverse audiences. 201 was founded in 2014 by choreographer and director Andrea Walker, producer Patrick Collier, and a team of 6 experienced and emerging urban and contemporary dancers.

The company's ethos centres around creating challenging dance-theatre that crosses urban and contemporary genres. We are driven to confront controversial issues and challenge social prejudices, and partner with advocacy and outreach charities to use exceptional dance theatre as a vehicle for engaging audiences in topical social issues.
