Neon Dance is an internationally renowned company that embraces a diverse and digital population; an organisation which connects people with rigorous artists and original thinkers and develops works that explore technologies and design with the body as the central tenet.
As Executive Producer (2016-2021) I secured international commissions from Echigo-Tsumari Art Triennial and Setouchi Art Festival (Japan), Reversible Destiny Foundation (USA) and Sadler's Wells and The Place (UK).
I supported the continued development of the organisation, have authored the 2021-2024 business plan, created a suite of organisational policy's and put plans in place for an application to the Charity Commission.
"Ian successfully fundraised from a wide range of sources and negotiated impressive commission fees. He has the unique capacity for divergent thinking, his innovative approach to public engagement and for weaving access into each new production has had a profound impact on our approach to dance making, whilst his mentoring of young people has resulted in many of our Cultural Connectors going on to find full-time employment."
