This autumn Karla Shacklock Company will be holding 5 free and accessible Out of the Box events across the country. The events will be an opportunity for artists, venues, producers, programmers and funders to come together, to have authentic conversations (no holds barred except moaning!), to play with thinking in new ways and to consider how we can work together in order to survive and thrive.

Each event will include Karla and a changing group of dance legends (ranging from Liz Aggiss, Theo Clinkard, Charlotte Vincent, Wendy Houston, Ben Duke, Laila Diallo, Gary Clarke, Jean Abreu and many more) sharing their OOTB stories, and time and space for dance artists to think about their own journey. Topics might include: touring, funding, health and wellbeing, networking, parenthood, and generally how to keep going when it starts to feel tough.
