I should like to officially thank all those who so generously contributed to our crowd funding campaign.  I really hope that the work that we achieve does you all proud.

Some people chose to donate anonymously, or under names so fantastically coded, that I have yet to figure out who they were, but the (incomplete) list of official patrons of Tara Pilbrow Dance is as follows:

To all you young fathers out there: A slightly bizarre request...

I've spent much of my time over the last few weeks thinking about images, narrative and movement ideas, and generally preparing for rehearsals for '2+1,' which start on the 7th April.  I've come to realize (unsurprisingly) that my vision is deeply one sided, and that there's a very serious danger that my portrayal of the first few months of a child's life will be seriously biased to the experience of the mother.      Hence I turn to you….

If any of you feel inclined to pen a few words,… to jot down some of the high, and lowlights of your experience, and send them to me, I would be deeply grateful.  It doesn't have to be a long essay, just whatever jumps to mind.  The piece looks at how your life changes in the first few months of your baby's life, and specifically at how this effects the relationship between the you and your partner.  Any tips, quips, memories or anecdotes would be welcome.

If you'd rather not post your ideas on the blog, just send me an email at

Good News on all fronts

A Massive thank you to all those who have contributed so far to our Crowdfunding Campaign.

We have received a massive £860 with two days still to go before the deadline.

We have also had confirmation of our grant from the Arts Council of England.

Working hard now to make sure that we put it all to good use!
