Chapel Steet



Déda is a creative centre for dance, contemporary circus and outdoor work. The stunning building, located on Chapel Street, houses three professionally equipped dance studios,…

BIRD, the Lustrum Award Winner at Edingburgh Fringe 2023, is a stage sequel to AKDC’s critically acclaimed dance film ‘Catch The Bird Who Won’t Fly’ choreographed by Amina Khayyam.

This performance opens with a striking silent scream – conveying the harrowing experiences of domestic violence survivors. It delves into the uncertainty and fear that plagues women in abusive situations as they contemplate breaking free and rebuilding their lives. 

Inspired by a workshop with a women’s community group, BIRD confronts the social stigma faced by these women, through a high-energy Kathak dance and a specially commissioned live music score by Jonathan Mayer.
