UPG Logo The Urban Playground

UPG Team shows range from intimate choreographies to festival finales and from single events to long term residencies. The Team can respond to any type of environment. They have performed on moving buses, iconic London rooftops, on the beach in Kuwait, in the souk in Qatar, in Bangkok’s main train station and in a Scandinavian swamp. They have toured across the UK & performed on five continents. Their work has been commissioned by The National Theatre Watch This Space; the Civic, Barnsley; the Juice Festival for Children & Young People; the Without Walls consortium of Outdoor Festivals; the Napoli Teatro Festival Italia; the Brighton Festival; the Dublin Fringe; the Transit ‘Europe in America’ Commission for Baltimore, and numerous other festivals. Since 2008 work has been toured by the British Council and supported by the Arts Council of England. Since 2013 the UPG Team have been supported by South East Dance and are ‘playtime’ supported artists at Pavilion Dance South West.
