Artistic Director

The company is led by Artistic Director Matthew Robinson who has worked as a dancer, choreographer, and rehearsal director since graduating from London Contemporary Dance School in 2009.

Upon graduation he joined Scottish Dance Theatre, working with an exciting international company of dancers, performing work by a diverse range of choreographers over many years.

In 2013 he was invited to jointly take on the responsibilities of Rehearsal Director at SDT and assisted in the creation of numerous works, supported the company on international tours and worked with postgraduate apprentice dancers emerging into the professional world. In that time he continued to research and create his own choreographic work and explore his teaching practice, enjoying choreographic commissions across Scotland and teaching and presenting his work nationally and internationally.

Matthew joined NSCD as VERVE Artistic Director in August 2016 and will this year choreograph his first piece for the company to tour in 2018.
