One Dance UK supports statement on safe practice in theatre industry

23 Nov 2017

One Dance UK supports a statement made recently by UK Theatre about the current issue of sexual harassment.  It is of major concern to us. We offer the Dance sector our support in tackling the issue and developing appropriate policies and practices, and are joining a working party set up by Equity to discuss how the industry can stamp out sexual abuse and harassment.

UK Theatre and SOLT are coordinating industry-wide activity to ensure that they respond positively and responsibly to the issue of sexual harassment and abuses of power in the theatre industry, and One Dance UK will support these as appropriate.

The two organisations have stated that they will support members, and the industry, to share and develop policies and practices that mean theatre is a safe and supportive working environment for everyone.

In addition they are to hold a series of open forum events across the country as opportunities to share and learn from best practice across the industry.
