David Hughes has over 20 years' experience working with leading UK dance companies such as Rambert Dance Company, Matthew Bourne's Adventures In Motion Pictures, DV8 Physical Theatre, Phoenix Dance Company, Siobhan Davies Dance and Wayne McGregor. Hughes's high caliber technical ability is the lynchpin for the wider range of skills present within his company, and he is dedicated to commissioning new work by sophisticated and innovative collaborators.

David Hughes Dance is composed of multi-disciplined performers internationally recognised as being at the forefront of their individual styles: ballet, contemporary, hip hop, classical Indian and circus. The fusion of artists makes the choreographic vocabulary fresh and unusual. The company encapsulates the cultural diversity of the British landscape and although the choreographic style can be at times abstract it is set amongst a narrative backdrop and is equally accessible to theatre and dance audiences. In their new full length piece Last Orders the company take the tale of legendary 16th century Scottish cannibal Sawney Bean as its inspiration, exploring the presentation of the horror genre through a journey where nothing is quite what is seems.
