“Dance is a window into our souls. When we really dance, we feel free. If we help others to dance, we help them to be free. This is what we do”. -Aakash Odedra
Fixed Term Contract: Oct 2018 – Jan 2019 (4 Months)
Deadline for Tender Proposals: 5:00pm Monday 10th September 2018
Leicester Dance Theatre/Aakash Odedra Company is seeking to appoint a skilled marketing consultant/company to work with us. You will develop operational plans for marketing, digital and social media and robust systems for data collection, collation, analysis and reporting to help us move to the next stage of development.
We are at an exciting juncture as a company. We have just been appointed as a band 2 organisation by Arts Council England and have ambitious plans to fulfil our vision and artistic plans of bringing exceptional dance experiences to local, national and international audiences and participants. At the core of who we are, we believe in art’s transformational power for communities and individuals, that freedom of expression and art should be everyone’s fundamental right and that great dance, and indeed art, can come from anywhere.
Led by Artistic Director Aakash Odedra, the company is building a team dedicated to delivering this vision. Our most recent work #JeSuis won Amnesty International’s Freedom of Expression Award in Edinburgh (2017) and the ACTA Award for Best Dance in London (2018). Aakash is considered one of the most virtuosic Kathak performers in the world today. The New York Times said of him ‘…reveals an exceptionally agile dancer who, it appears, has no trouble slipping between styles, effortlessly multilingual.’
