Autin Dance Theatre - Pathos

We are delighted to announce the arrival of a new Dance & Physical Theatre Company, Autin Dance Theatre, set up by French-born and Birmingham-based dance artist and choreographer Johnny Autin.

After critical acclaim in 2013 for his electrifying piece 'Taksim Square' - inspired by the Arab Spring and popular protests in Turkey - Johnny and his company Autin Dance Theatre have gone on to receive Arts Council Funding for their new contemporary dance and education initiative Pathos.

Pathos will culminate in a highly-anticipated triple-bill evening of performance, taking place in the Main House of the Crescent Theatre, Birmingham on the 25th July at 7.30pm. Three works will be performed by Johnny and his dance artists: Taksim Square Reloaded, Chimera, and Out of Touch. Attached is the press release, which we ask you to distribute to your networks, to help get behind us at this exciting time.

Tickets are on sale now here.

* The running time of Pathos is 60 minutes with no interval from 8pm, and our curtain raiser #uploading featuring the amazing Man Made Youth Company will run several times from 7.00pm *

Please also find a link to our crowd funding campaign to help us raise money for these performances!

As part of Pathos, Autin Dance Theatre is also delivering an extensive outreach and education programme, holding 90 minute dance workshops in local schools and colleges in the Birmingham area. If you want to get involved with these or want Autin Dance Theatre to hold an on-site dance workshop for you please e-mail us at

And finally...
Johnny along with partner Jerrel Jackson of Jerrel Jackson Dance Company, have created Birmingham's first all-male contemporary dance company - Man Made Youth. So keep your ears to the ground for more news from them in the coming months... They will also be opening the show on the 25th with an exciting curtain-raiser performance of their debut piece #uploading. So come down to Birmingham and be the first to catch a look at
this amazing bunch...


Lots happening, lots to share, so please do! We will be in touch with more news soon,
