Humans Move led by Jessie Brett, creates inclusive dance performances and activities in Wales and Ethiopia, in which all bodies are welcome. Our work centres on inclusion and shifting perspectives through creating opportunities to exchange not only dance knowledge but also cultural, emotional and physical experiences.

We strongly believe in people from different cultures, backgrounds and abilities coming together to share meaningful experiences, where any prejudices and preconceptions can be challenged and overcome. Understanding that we are part of a shared world and we are all connected. We created Humans Move to be a space where our uniqueness can be celebrated and utilised to inform the creative process. Each of us is needed, like the pieces of an elaborate puzzle, to create balance in the world. There is something to be learnt from every human experience. Humans Move brings this vision into a space where inclusivity and diversity in dance can be pushed forward and more and more people can be offered this unique experience.

Company activities:

Performance

Humans Move creates thought provoking, new and inclusive dance theatre. We work collaboratively to devise and tour accessible dance theatre productions, and to encourage empathy and connection between audiences and performers. Humans Move strives to enable disabled and Deaf people to find new ways of connecting to themselves and their own bodies through our work.

Development work

Humans Move organises classes, workshops and activities inviting participants to exchange locally and internationally through dance. Our company empowers, supports disabled, deaf artists and women to develop their skills and tell their own stories. Through therapeutic and transformational dance and theatre projects, we hold a safe space for them to share their experiences and rewrite narratives.

Support Systems

Humans Move works together with the dance community, and organisations based in Wales and Ethiopia, towards identifying and breaking down current barriers for disabled people to access dance training and professional work. We support creative voices through mentoring and creating opportunities to grow artistically. We aim to help organisations make their activities accessible by setting up support systems between them and their participants, as well as creating resources and tools for people to develop inclusive practice.

Let’s Connect.
