Announcing our Artistic Direction Panel!

We are excited to announce Touch Compass's newly-appointed Artistic Direction Panel to our large global whānau!

Our Artistic Direction Panel is comprised of three heralded dancers and long-time Touch Compass collaborators - Rodney Bell, Suzanne Cowan and Lusi Faiva. 

The panel was brought on in an advisory capacity from July 2021 to help shape Touch Compass's 25th anniversary celebration, /rītaha/- a gala event bringing together past, present and future Touch Compass performance works under one roof. They have been made permanent employees of Touch Compass, further cementing our commitment to our disability-led kaupapa.

The ADP will lead Touch Compass into 2022, each bringing their unique perspective and experience to create a challenging and exemplary disability arts programme.
