Kerry Manning

Kerry 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 still feels very new to her - and thoroughly exhilarating. "I learn something new and fascinating about the power of dance every week".

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

She is 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". She is hoping to carry on learning as much as possible in her time here.
