Amici Dance Theatre Company

Amici Dance Theatre Company

Amici Dance Theatre Company is a unique dance theatre company integrating disabled and non-disabled artists and performers.

Founded by Wolfgang Stange in 1980, its productions and workshops have had a major impact world-wide, challenging conventional attitudes about disability and the arts.

AMICI runs regular classes (once a week during term time) for its 40+ members at the Lyric Hammersmith where they are the resident community arts company. Biannually they produce a full company show performed in the Lyric’s main theatre.

AMICI gives open-workshops, residencies, student placements and performances throughout the year.

“When we talk about “The Magic of Amici” it comes down to the magical contribution of the individuals. Amici’s magic is providing a safe space where the individual can release their creative energy which produces the magical moments”

Wolfgang Stange, Founder & Artistic Director of Amici Dance Theatre Company
