Dep Arts strives to work with artists and companies across the UK and Europe. We are very proud to work with the National Dance Company Wales, who are based in the Wales Millennium Centre, Cardiff.
The company has just finished their Spring 2011 tour of By Singing Light, Quixoteland and Romance Inverse, to much critical acclaim. Judith Mackrell recently wrote for the Guardian that, ‘this is an ideal work for NDCWale’s dancers – flattering their robust energy and individuality’

Hi all! My name is Fiona and so ends my second week as the new (and first) Arts and Events Marketing Intern and it seems I have come in at quite an exciting time. Dep Arts Ltd is currently gearing up for the Edinburgh Fringe Festival as well as moving into new offices, launching a new website and signing up to work with some exciting new companies (see earlier Ponydance blog.)
