|The company was formed in 2008 by Edd Mitton and is made up of comtemporary dance graduates and students from the London Studio Centre, brought together by a joint interest in creating accessible dance theatre. On Romance is the company's largest-scale-work to date; they look forward to working on further exciting projects in the coming year, and are keen to collaborate with other dancers, musicians, and visual artists.
‘On Romance’ is a collage of styles, images and ideas based on the theme of how romance is portrayed and perceived in dance. It is sometimes playful, sometimes melancholic and nostalgic, and often tender and understated. It blends contemporary and gestural movement with a more recognisable ballroom dance vocabulary to create a fun, atmospheric and ultimately moving 'living scrapbook' of romantic relationships.
