Moving with the Times

Part of the annual Dancin’ Oxford Spring Dance Festival, Moving with the Times is a showcase for new works commissioned by Pegasus and Dancin’ Oxford.

About Moving with the Times

Celebrating its’ 10th Anniversary, Dancin’ Oxford and Pegasus Theatre collaborate every year to create the Moving with the Times commission.

Each year, three dance artists/companies are commissioned to showcase work as part of the Dancin’ Oxford Spring Dance Festival at Pegasus Theatre.

Each selected company or artist will receive a guaranteed £1,000 commission fee to create the work. They will also receive technical support, marketing and promotion provided by Pegasus and Dancin’ Oxford. 

As part of this year’s 10th anniversary event, we will be offering additional mentoring support to commissioned artists, which may include the opportunity to be linked up with a previously commissioned artist to support their practice.

2021 Artists

These are the three dance artists/companies commissioned to present new work as part of the Dancin’ Oxford 2021 Spring Dance Festival at Pegasus Theatre on 5 & 6 March 2021.

The artists will be performing an extract of their piece at a preview event ‘First Look’ at Pegasus Theatre on Friday 15 January 2021, offering an opportunity for audience feedback.

D/Illusion is a solo work that explores the characteristics of schizophrenia and our society’s view on mental illness. Using text, contemporary dance, and live music, this work immerses the audience into the character’s unique psyche, pushing us to consider the ways in which we can empathise with those we brand as other.

Just a Minute

Just a minute! You’re on your knees.
So overwhelmed, glued to the spot!
Deafened by distractions. Make a run for it? You don’t know whether to laugh or cry. Keep smiling, no one will know, until the cracks start to show. A head on encounter with mental health from motherhood and beyond, created and performed by Kate Taylor.

Pegasus’ energy and belief gave me the boost I needed to apply for funding; their space and financial support helped me to get it.”
