We recently broke new territory by negotiating an Equity deal with freelance choreographer @YukikoMasui for her new production ‘It Takes Two Too’.
Yukiko received Arts Council funding for her project and knew that she wanted to employ the dancers on Equity-approved terms and conditions; “It helps me as an independent choreographer to know that I am employing dancers responsibly. Freelance dancers have very little protection in this industry, so this is my contribution to improving conditions in the freelance dance sector.”
Whatever size your project is and whatever level you’re funded to, Equity can help you to achieve a union-recognised agreement. Just email Beth Doran on firstname.lastname@example.org.
