Amici have been holding monthly on-line open workshops at 7:30pm till 9:00pm on a Wednesday run by Wolfgang and Amici members. Everyone is welcome. The next one will be 24th February 2021.
The workshop is free but we would ask you to "Donate what you decide" by using the CLICK TO DONATE link on this page. Many thanks.
Obviously, due to Coronavirus restrictions we will be holding it via Zoom. This does, however, mean that we can have people from all over the world taking part so please do pass this link on to anyone you think might be interested.
Due to on-line restrictions to how many can attend early booking is adviced.
Amici regularly get requests from teachers, practitioners, dance students and people of all abilities and levels of experience interested to attend their classes, learn their methods and teaching practices, in response Amici hold “open workshops”, which are open to anyone. A unique opportunity to take part in an Amici Dance Theatre Company workshop run by Wolfgang Stange and Amici members.
Amici have now moved online and are meeting weekly in their usual time slot of 7.30pm – 8.30pm. These classes take place on Zoom and are taught by Artistic Director Wolfgang Stange and Amici members.
“Amici are committed to being fully accessible and inclusive, we have had a major impact worldwide challenging conventional attitudes to disability and the arts. At Amici we feel everyone should work collectively to support each other, listen and ensure that disability and inclusiveness is at the heart of evolving arts policy and practice”. Amici Dance Theatre Company
A look back at Amici
Amici Dance Theatre Company celebrated their 40th anniversary this year with ‘A look back at AMICI’ with six of their most renowned performances being live streamed on YouTube between Monday 18th May – Saturday 23rd May at 7:30pm.
During the live streaming each evening, there was the opportunity to ask questions about the shows and company in a live Q&A with Wolfgang Stange (Amici’s Artistic Director and founder) and members of Amici. The live performances attracted hundreds of viewers from all over the world. There is still the opportunity to watch the films by following the links below.

Please join us in an exploration of Amici’s history, seeing past performances and reflecting on how they have developed over 40 years. Amici’s stunning work has always subverted stereotypes and challenged conventional attitudes towards disability and the arts breaking both barriers and new ground. In a time of uncertainty, the Amici shows are a panacea, as Wolfgang Stange comments “we must not lose sight of hope, without hope we would be very lost indeed”. Amici shows that sharing and celebrating each other’s differences is the only way forward.
The 40th Anniversary Show, Amici’s One World, is currently being rescheduled for 2021 – when we can all be together again, inviting international artists from across the globe to join in a celebration of joy, life, protest and the beauty of uniting people from different cultures.
