ZoieLogic Dance are seeking a Project Coordinator

Introducing ZoieLogic Dance Theatre (ZLDT)

ZoieLogic Dance Theatre, led by founding Artistic Director Zoie Golding, challenges perceptions of
what dance is, who it is for and how it is presented.
We’re on a mission to get more people involved in dance, especially men and boys and those less
likely to see or take part in the arts. We make this happen by creating and touring professional dance
theatre shows, and through our outreach, engagement, and talent development programmes. 2020 is
our 20th anniversary year.

ZLDT is a Community Interest Company with both a Non-Executive Director’s board and Advisory
Board chaired by Michael Ockwell, CEO Mayflower Theatre Southampton.
The purpose of our work
We want to create and support significant social change through dance. Our values and beliefs have
been developed through20 years of experience working with boys and men - work which continues to
have a proven positive impact on those involved and challenges the pressures of masculine identity
in the 21st century. Visit our website to learn more about how we fulfill our purpose through a range
of dance theatre projects and productions: www.zoielogic.co.uk

Current activity
2020 has been an extraordinary and challenging year due to the Coronavirus pandemic. ZLDT has
been able to respond to the challenges faced by the arts/culture sector by adapting our artistic vision
for the year and taking action.

Our small team continued to work from home throughout lockdown, and has delivered an outdoor
tour of RIDE to care homes and retirement villages, and launched our first large scale socially
distanced participation project, The Grid Experience. We have kept our youth dance companies
running and have taken part in digital projects with partners including Greenwich Dance. We believe
in finding ways through difficult times together, and proudly fly the flag for the healing and unifying
power of dance.

We have a provisional programme of activity in place for 2021/22, which will adapt if Coronavirus
causes new challenges and barriers to activity. These plans include an eight-week tour of our smash
hit show SLEUTH in Autumn 2021, a dance film project made with the residents of Southampton’s
Holyrood Estate, and several more editions of The Grid Experience
