It is with great sadness that we share the news that Janis Claxton died early this morning.

Janis was a tour-de-force: a hugely talented choreographer and a front-line fighter for gender equality in dance. She died early this morning having been diagnosed with lung cancer in the spring.

Her most famous work POP-UP DUETS has just finished at Tanzmesse and will continue with its scheduled tour, next stop Bilbao. The dancers are and have been absolute legends throughout the tour, all over the world.

For those of you who wish to mark her memory please do donate to the Marie Curie hospice who have been amazing;
