Arlene and Joanne are two of the most respected faces of British dance. Both have entertained us during their time on Strictly Come Dancing but are also stepped in musical theatre and the creation of new work. We will discuss the various ways Arlene approaches new work and how she finds a distinct physical language for each show.

Drew McOnie in conversation with Paul Taylor-Mills

It takes a small village to make a show and two people have the responsibility of leading that community. Making a new musical is a high pressured game and knowing how to bring out the best in those we work with is a skill in itself. Paul Taylor-Mills talks to Drew McOnie about their past projects as producer and director respectively (In The Heights/ The Wild Party) and they share antidotes and experiences of leading creative teams and companies to opening nights.
