Levantes Dance Theatre
The company works primarily with Dance Theatre, with a constant enthusiasm for fusing artistic disciplines and indulging in vibrant aesthetics.
The company consists of key practitioners Eleni Edipidi and Bethanie Harrison working alongside a number of long term collaborators. Since 2005, Levantes Dance Theatre have been making bold, bright and beautiful performance for audiences of all ages. Striking visuals and creative choreography are signature features in the work, made for theatre/circus venues or outdoor festivals and events.
The work is current, bold and honest. We have a kitsch admiration for routine and value the body’s capacity to communicate in its most basic form.
‘multi-sensory, multi-disciplinary melange of magic…!’
”[They] use dance as a simple yet enlightening method of communication.”
Levantes work with two focal strands to their practice. Work for Black Box Theatre and Public Interventions in the form of canapé routines; visual pieces of play that interact closely with audience. The two strands collectively develop the company’s connection with audience.
Levantes has been funded mostly through commissions, upon which we have developed a national reputation and track record of delivering high-quality successful productions.
As a result, we are Associate Artists at Greenwich Dance, who support our projects both in-kind and through commissions.
