Under the choreography of Lea Anderson, and with sister company The Cholmondeleys, The Featherstonehaughs are one of the most important and influential contemporary dance companies of the last 30 years.

Renowned for her use of and reference to visual images, film stills and sampling techniques, a Featherstonehaughs’ workshop offers a unique insight into ways of devising performance from a variety of art mediums. 

Workshops introduce some of the unique creative methods applied and developed by Lea, encouraging participants to experiment with their own techniques and ideas in order to create new ways of moving and making work; turn convention on its head and think about devising dance theatre in a brand new light.
