Mark Bruce Company


In 2012 the Mark Bruce Company toured to PDSW with Made in Heaven.

We received a really warm welcome and felt supported by all of the venue’s staff.  It also became clear that they really knew their stuff and we had some great conversations about our organisation’s development over the next 3 years.


Since then we’ve remained in regular contact and PDSW are a key partner in the creation of our company’s latest work, Dracula.

In the current financial climate it can be tricky to source funding for new projects.  Receiving a commissioning fee from PDSW has enabled us to leverage money from other sources, who were happy to match-fund their contribution.

Having the endorsement of your regional agency acts as a hallmark of quality and this seems to be opening a lot of doors for us. Beyond that we’re enjoying working closely with an organisation which understands our company and its ethos.


The Mark Bruce Company was formed in 1991 as a vehicle for the uncompromising dance theatre of Mark Bruce.

Based in Frome, the company is a Dream Artist of PDSW, an associate artist of the Tobacco Factory Theatre and an affiliate artist of the Merlin Theatre.

Mark Bruce has choreographed, directed and danced internationally for over 20 years, working with Rosas, Bern Ballet, Probe, Introdans, Igloo, Extemporary Dance Theatre and DJazzex among others.

Bruce’s theatre work includes the Royal Exchange Theatre’s productions of The BacchaeAntigoneThe Glass MenagerieThe Revenger’s TragedyAntony & CleopatraPeer GyntAs You Like ItFast Food, Still Time and The Way of the World. He co-devised Skellig, an opera based on the book by David Almond, for the Sage Gateshead in 2008. He directed Rick Bland’s award winning Thick, which toured the UK, US and Canada.
