The Signdance Collective is a touring performance company established in 2001.  SDC is culturally diverse with a team of experienced Deaf disabled and diverse artists at the helm.


   From 1987 to 2000, the company directors pioneered "signdance theatre",

a fusion of sign theatre dance, and live original music.


Since 2001, Signdance Collective has continued to evolve signdance theatre initiating international collaborations and working alongside innovative artists, theatre philosophers, and performance companies across the world.


 Signdance Collective has worked with hundreds of people of all ages throughout the UK and internationally, delivering workshops, and producing new work.


The company is one of the first in the world to utilize and introduce the concept of inclusive practice with a specific focus on disability-deaf-led teamwork.

The company's first phase from inception in 1987 through to 2000 was followed by a second phase as a UK-based international group from 2001 onward. Whilst remaining consistent with the original mission statement as a core guiding principle that informs all that we do, we continue to create new and original work.


Established in London and Amsterdam, the company continues to be a unique, critically acclaimed, and innovative international ensemble. We are based at Wycombe Arts Centre in the United Kingdom, with a sister organization based in Zadar  Croatia.


SDC is known for mixing art forms to create 'innovative and creatively brilliant performances', Diversity Awards, BBC.


 'SDC produces high-quality work, which is moving, comic, spectacular, and engaging' 


SDC is a dance theatre company born on the margins of society, the integrity of their practice has won much acclaim and praise over three decades.
