Through his company Still House, Dan Canham makes performance events that span across dance, theatre, short film and audio recordings.
Dan is the lead artist at Still House and he works collaboratively with a wide range of artists, performers and creatives for each of the company’s projects.
Still House works often involve dance and music as a way of revealing ourselves to each other, better understanding each other and celebrating that which is different or overlooked.
Community is at the heart of the work – both the forming of temporary communities through the act of live performance, and a documentary approach in which the company engages with particular groups of people as a way of sharing unheard stories.
Guiding values and principles of the company include tenderness, heart, sincerity and joy.
Still House is produced by MAYK
