About aKa Dance Theatre Company
aKa Dance Theatre Company was co-founded by Jen Grant and Joe Garbett in early 2014. Based in Taunton as company in residence at Tacchi-Morris Arts Centre, aKa are excited to be a small-scale company that creates works that are adaptable for a variety of performance surroundings, indoors and out. They are fiercely interested and invested in ensuring that the arts are accessible and enjoyable to all and love nothing more than bringing communities together.
Since starting in 2014, they’ve been having a cracking time creating bright and playful dance theatre works that are loaded with colour and craziness, taking them out and about to visit a variety of audiences in a variety of places and spaces.
They have had an absolute blast visiting an eclectic mix of venues across the UK – Glastonbury Festival, The Place, Rich Mix, The Book Club, Thimblemill Library, Grittleton Village Hall to name a few, receiving audience feedback such as…

aKa Dance Theatre Company – Artistic Policy
aKa Dance Theatre Company has an intelligent and raw approach to physical and visual mediums which blends a provoking artistic identity. Imagination together with play allows each creation to lie somewhere between fiction and reality. Power driven statements, commanding physicality and striking images are daringly woven together injecting organic moments that exist and then resonate beyond performance.
