Our Story

Dundee Rep and Scottish Dance Theatre Limited’s mission is Create Together, Discover Together.

Ours is a unique model, with twin ensembles sharing a home and a legal structure. Having a permanent acting ensemble is rare (unique in Scotland), but combined with a dance company – the organisation is one of a kind.

Sitting at the cultural heart of Scotland and the City of Dundee, the Rep is integral to the transformation of the City. The Company delivers ‘built in Dundee’ dance and theatre in the City and on tour (in Scotland, the UK and internationally), a programme of visiting companies and artists on the Rep stage, a creative learning programme across both theatre and dance and a highly successful events and catering operation.

With a near 80-year history, the Rep is a centre of creative energy, a space for engagement with a wide range of art forms, whilst also playing a lead role in arts education and engagement across the city and beyond.

At the heart of the Dundee Rep and Scottish Dance Theatre’s vision is the belief that artistic and creative experience should be open and available to all. The theatre seeks to share a diverse programme of theatre and dance across Dundee and beyond by taking its work out of the theatre and into the wider geographical and cultural communities.
