Stopgap Dance Company create exhilarating dance productions for national and international touring. We employ disabled and non-disabled artists who find innovative ways to collaborate.

Stopgap value a pioneering spirit and are committed to making discoveries about integrating disabled and non-disabled people through dance.

Difference is our means and our method.

Stopgap’s productions are devised by the company dancers and collaborators, working as an ensemble under the artistic direction of Lucy Bennett:

Our productions seek to offer a window into a parallel world where human interdependence, strength and vulnerability play out with poetic realism.
