Hawk Dance Theatre (HDT) is a Manchester based contemporary dance company led by choreographer Josh Hawkins. 

By opening new doors and possibilities, HDT takes responsibility for reaching out and connecting with people both within and outside of their communities; triggering and enabling them to change their perspective of themselves and others through dance and movement. HDT creates visually dynamic and powerful productions for various platforms – theatres, outdoors and digitally.

"Josh Hawkins is certainly one of the brightest new voices in contemporary dance theatre" – Luca Silvestrini, Artistic Director, Protein

"Josh is an exceptional and talented young artist and I highly suspect will be one to watch for the future" - James Mackenzie-Blackman, Executive Director, New Adventures.


Hawk Dance Theatre are proud to have received support from Arts Council England's Project Grant Lottery Funding on a range of our projects. In the past 5 years HDT have received several Grant awards to support the research, development, creation & tour of our own projects.

Hawk Dance Theatre won an award for ‘Best Experimental Short’ at the 2017 London City Film Awards for their Random Act’s film ‘The Blackest Day’ (Broadcast on Channel 4, TV platform in 2016).
