our true feelings pushing through the obstacles that lie in front of us the willingness to change our behaviour and unmask the self to show who we truly are.”

Participant

Who We Are  

Fallen Angels Dance Theatre provide exceptional dance theatre experiences for people in recovery from addiction where they are accepted, valued and reach their potential. We have been instrumental in supporting over 500 individuals through our participatory workshops. We support people in the NW in recovery from addiction to transform their lives and share the recovery journey with the wider public, through dance, performance and creativity. Fallen Angels Dance Theatre (FADT) is led by Artistic Director Paul Bayes Kitcher and Claire Morris Creative and Strategic Director. Paul’s lived experience of addiction and recovery encapsulates the complex barriers that those in recovery face including mental health issues, disability and neurodiversity. We provide a structured pathway to enhance recovery through creative activities that promote well-being and inclusion in the recovery process.

Participants are at the heart of our work, sharing their stories in our R&D process, developing dance skills in our workshop programme and, for some, auditioning and performing in our professional company, showing how creative intervention can make positive and lasting change in recovery from addiction.
We are company in residence at Storyhouse, Chester and are executive members of Dance Consortia North West.

We have developed from a small, project funded collaboration to an organisation delivering dance recovery workshops in 3 major NW areas. In the last 2 years, we have worked through the pandemic to increase provision to our vulnerable communities, provide mental health support for our participants & team, deliver our most ambitious creative project to date & rolled out a major organisational development process through funding from Arts Council England’s (ACE) Elevate programme, demonstrating our ambition & determination.
