Thomas Page (He/They) is an independent dance artist based in Oxford and Artistic Director of Thomas Page Dances (TPD). Currently undertaking their masters at The Rambert School of Ballet and Contemporary Dance, Thomas is also an Associate Artist of Swindon Dance, The Old Fire Station Theatre, and a recent SPARK Artist in Residence at The Pegasus Theatre. Using choreography as a form of aesthetic activism and the universality of dance as a language seeking to create connections between people who are often separated by very specific ideas, beliefs or experiences. This practice is seen both in Thomas’ work with their professional company and youth company, TPD Young Artists.
“I’m interested in how we can build a better future for professional dance artists in Oxford. I’m doing this by dreaming big with the creation of a utopian model for dance the dance ecology of Oxford, finding real life starting points as I choreograph this utopia.”
