    We recorded Episode 10 with our guest artist Sarah Blanc a couple of months back, when coronavirus was something we'd barely heard of here in London and before we had any idea of the impact it would have, not only around the world but on the industry we work in. In the last week a lot has changed; most of us in the dance industry have lost our work and everything feels quite uncertain. Still, as this podcast is a place for conversations about our industry and the paths we find through it, we hope you'll still find this conversation with Sarah relevant (and entertaining!) even if in a slightly different light.

Her choreographic work has toured extensively across the world and has been seen on artists and companies such as Complicite, Bryony Kimmings, Little Red Ke
