Kerry Manning

I joined Candoco in September 2016 to cover for our permanent Digital & Communications Manager, Lucy, while she took time to start her new family.

Having previously worked in regional theatre (and historical churches!), being up close and personal with contemporary dance is very new to me - and thoroughly exhilarating. I learn something new and fascinating about the power of dance every week.

In my spare time I do a lot of blogging and write for a couple of music websites, so being based in our office in Islington surrounded by great live music venues is ideal. I'm also a bit of a theatre buff and can happily bore the ears off of anyone talking about new productions for a few hours(!)

I'm a true believer that the arts should always aim to defy and transcend social barriers to make aspiration and creativity accessible to all. I am extremely proud to work for a company that holds the same values and is constantly challenging expectations through the production of bold new works. I hope to carry on learning as much as possible in my time here.
