Kane John Mills
Kane John Mills (He/Him) is a dance, theatre & spoken word artist (facilitator, maker/choreographer, performer, director, and writer) who trained at Northern School of Contemporary Dance (NSCD), graduating with a BPA (Hons) Degree.
A Disabled and Neurodivergent creative, and staunch advocate for inclusivity and accessibility, Kane actively strives to break down barriers and dispel preconceptions around who the arts are for. He strongly believes that artistic, cultural and educative experiences are for everyone and should be accessible to all.
He has extensive experience delivering improvisation, dance, theatre, physical theatre, creative writing, and voice & movement classes, workshops, masterclasses, lectures, intensives, socially-engaged projects, community classes, company classes, youth companies and performance training companies, for many organisations, as well as for an array of primary schools, secondary schools, colleges (including SEN-specialist colleges), SEND settings, day centres, universities, care/resident homes, intergenerational settings, early years settings, and theatre in education programmes.
Kane has created works as an independent artist, in collaboration with others, as a part of community/socially-engaged projects, and as commissions for companies/organisations. He draws upon a variety of art forms (such as dance/movement, theatre, physical theatre, spoken word, storytelling, installation art, and film) to make innovative works that are often of an autoethnographic nature.
He has performed locally, regionally, nationally & internationally with various companies in many dance, theatre, film, TV, and interdisciplinary works, as well as toured in his own works.
Kane teaches his own guided improvisation-based practice, Space To Play, at Space To Move.
The uplifting sessions invite you to let go, embrace however you wish to move, and explore your imagination, playfulness and curiosity.
